It could be a file path problem--a relative >>>>>path that didn't match

The permissions are getting changed (the user has permission to
change)(FTP works fine with out throwing any errors)

But in sftp when the file has 555 or 444 permissison and we try to
change any other permissions
The permisison are changed but the following error occurs

* Re-using existing connection! (#0) with host <hsotname>
* Connected to <hsotname> (<hsotname>) port 22 (#0)
* Sending quote commands
* Attempt to set SFTP stats failed: Permission denied---->what is this
* Connection #0 to host <hsotname> left intact
* Quote command returned error
The value of the errorStatus ::.ChmodFile 21(from curl_

should I have to set/configure some settings for the sftp user do let
me know how to do it????

you sure the SFTP user has permission to change the mode of the given
