552 FTP response code

Updated May 3, 2017


This article provides information on 552 FTP response code.


All Serv-U versions


A 552 response code may be sent in response to any command requiring the server to store received information locally. It is a permanent negative response, which means the client is discouraged from sending the command again since the server will respond with the same reply code. It usually indicates that the logged in user has exceeded the storage space allocated to their user account by the administrator.

Example response

552 Requested file action aborted; Exceeded storage allocation.
