I have a LS installation on Plesk and it would appear that the files in tmp and upload that are created by LS require higher privileges than I have. I will not receive upgraded privileges, since I am on a shared server.
The hosting company suggested that it would only take a few lines of code to allow LS to use a FTP upload and solve all my problems. If their story checks out I will also submit a bug report with more details.
Meanwhile, is there any way to upload a survey (.lss) via ftp? I know it is possible to do so with a custom theme, so maybe it is possible here too.
Also, this installation is dedicated to a single survey. So, if i need to modify some files locally and then re-install i can (reluctantly ) do that.
