I set up a new Ubuntu server with one user to whom I granted full permissions by adding
jsmith ALL=(ALL) ALLto the
/etc/sudoersfile. The idea being that I would be able to never log in as root and use jsmith all the time for the day-to-day administration of the server.
I want to use Coda to upload files to the server, logging in as jsmith rather than root.
Unfortunately, when I log in to the server under SFTP using root, I can upload files without issues. If I log in as jsmith, I can connect to the server and navigate all the way up to its root, but if I try to upload a file I get an error [screenshot here: http://i.via.dj/CRvH]
I suspect I've overlooked something in the configuration, but despite googling the issue I haven't been able to find a solution.
Any suggestions welcome.
