Topic "WinSCP does not show me all files on server"

Author Message



I got an little problem. I crashed my Linux-Server, so I have to reinstall the whole thing.

I just can get into the so called "rescue mode" where I have mounted all partitions.

Now I wanted to make a backup of the mysql-dbs and the html-files but WinSCP shows me the home-folder as empty! I tried to switch to a html-folder by using the console in WinSCP but all that I saw was that:

Command 'cd "/home/www/web1"'
failed with return code 1 and error message
-bash: cd: /home/www/web1: No such file or directory.

I've no idea why it's not showing me this folder. When I connect to the server by Putty, I can see all folders and files.

Can someone help me?
