I'm very new to servers, but have been on shared hosts for years. The company I have the server with allows me root access (it is my server, not a virtual one) but they have it set up to log in with my primary user id, and password. This works in Putty and WinSCP. I can move around directories and see everything. But, I do not seem to be able to upload or download or even rename. I am told as well that I need to issue the command su - to gain root access, then I enter the root password. This works in putty, I don't have a clue in WinSCP.
So my question is, how can I up/download and rename etc...
Thanks in advance!
