I have my instance of the Amazon AWS running, the test page is up.

I am trying to SFTP the files to the server to display my website. I have Filezilla connected to the AWS server but when I try to move the files from my local machine to the /var/www/html directory, it says permission denied.

I just figured out I can move the files to the /home/ec2-user directory. So my files are on the server I guess. But when I try to move them from there to the /var/www/html directory, it still won't move them, permission denied.

If you want write access to the public web directory (/var/www/html) for an ec2-user, then enter this command in the Ubuntu terminal which is open on PuTTY:

chown -R ec2-user /var/www/html

Also, you have to provide permissions for the final directory (/html) and also the complete directory:

chmod -R 755 /var/www/html
