  • Applies to:
  • Plesk Sitebuilder 4.x for Linux/Unix


Sitebuilder is not able to publish a site. The procedure fails with the error:

"The site cannot be published to the specified location. Cannot publish site because the publishing location status is 'Error'.  Details: An unknown error has occurred: index.html: Access is denied. (reply code 550).."


index.html file in the publishing location had "Read-only" attribute and could not be rewritten remotely by Sitebuilder.


Remove or rename index.html file and retry.
