Mirror SFTP Problem (1 post)

    I am trying to mirror my complete site to a VMware Virtual Machine (Centos 6.7) on my Mac. It starts off with the .htaccess file of my site and says permission denied. I can download the file to my desktop with no issues.

    I have looked in /var/log/secure and /var/log/messages and /var/log/httpd/error_log but can't find anything that tells me what is happening.

    This is what is on /var/log/secure
    Oct 1 15:05:32 localhost sshd[5460]: Accepted password for webmaster from port 59492 ssh2
    Oct 1 15:05:32 localhost sshd[5460]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user webmaster by (uid=0)
    Oct 1 15:05:32 localhost sshd[5462]: subsystem request for sftp
    Oct 1 15:05:34 localhost sshd[5462]: Received disconnect from 11: disconnected by user
    Oct 1 15:05:34 localhost sshd[5460]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user webmaster

    I am using the same username and password for the local and remote site in the mirror screen. I have setup that user too on the remote system.

    Please tell me how to find out the problem.
