comment SFTP permission denied on files owned by www-data
Hi, thanks for taking the time to answer, it's much appreciated. However, it doesn't really help. Chowning the files makes ALL of them unmodifiable when using SFTP (so kind of the opposite of what I'm after!). I can't really use the chmod workaround because a) I don't have permissions to chmod in SFTP; b) I don't really want to log in via SSH, change permissions, do my SFTPing, change back, etc.; and c) some files have different permissions for security reasons, so I can't chmod en masse anyway.

comment How do I install Guest Additions in a VirtualBox VM?
I came across this answer while trying to install Guest Additions on Ubuntu Server. One step is missing if you need to install on server: run sudo apt-get install dkms first. (ref virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#idp19765808)
