While others are ok, FileZilla claims that it Failed to retrieve directory listing when accessing /var/www/htdocs.

The chmod is set to 775 for the htdocs directory.

I was transfering a folder with some php files to the htdocs dir when the connection broke. And then I've been unable to get to that dir since.

Could you please edit in more information? Else this question is likely to be closed as not being a real question. I'd suggest giving information on what you're trying to do or connect to and what your OS is. – Ivo Flipse Mar 4 '10 at 8:58
    
@Eme can you please include "No, chmod's alright. 775 on the derectory (www is the parent)" and "I was transfering a folder with some php files to the htdoc dir when the connection broke. And then I've been unable to get to that dir." into your question please? That'd make this a much better question – Earlz Apr 9 '10 at 20:16
    
@Earlz Like this :D? – BloodPhilia Aug 9 '10 at 20:36

This sounds like a permissions issue. FileZilla can list permissions. Goto the parent directory and see what the permissions list. It will look like 'drwxr-xr-x' or similiar. If the r's are missing that means you can't read the file.
