Solved

Thanks for your answer prikryl. Indeed the script I use was to blame (http://rays-blog.de/2012/05/05/94/use-winscp-to-upload-files-using-eclipses-autobuild-feature/). Strangely the script "thinks" a PDF is a directory. So I inserted an "if" for preventing this behaviour.

Re: File upload creates directory

You are explicitly creating a directory named thepdffile.pdf:

mkdir "/root/www/path/to/folder/pdf/thepdffile.pdf"

File upload creates directory

WinSCP 5.7.3.5438, Windows 8.1 Pro, Scripting with Eclipse, protocol scp

I am using WinSCP for synchronizing files, but whenever a PDF file has to be synchronized, a directory with that name is created on remote. As I recognize it at the moment, PDF is the only file format causing this error. Maybe there are other file formats.

Any idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
