cPanel: Unable to update the quota file (.ftpquota): [Permission denied]

I ran into this error when trying to create an addon domain in cPanel. An strace showed it hung up on the path “/” before timing out and then giving the error:

Unable to update the quota file (.ftpquota): [Permission denied]

Something is apparently starting at / to get to .ftpquota. The best way to remedy this is to fix the permissions of / with the following command:

chmod 755 /

Now when you create a new addon domain, it should work fine.
