Ftp 550 error permisson denied thousands of times

Hi All,

This may not be a HestiaCP issue exactly. I am trying to upload a full account ftp file set for a website. I am using filezilla and uploading to my domain on HestiaCP on a VPS. The website is a wordpress site, and when i transfer the files i am getting many 550 errors of permission denied.

I have created the database and all the files are clean and not modified from the original host. I am transfering from shared hosting to vps and so i am confused at what permission i am missing.

I did log in under the username that has the domain.
Is there a usual permission that i am missing that could be causing so many errors?

Any advice would be a big help.
