That will cause libcurl to return error. Can't you fix your command so that it
doesn't cause a >= 400 ftp error?

So enable CURLOPT_VERBOSE and you'll see that libcurl sends this SITE command.
If your server supports "SITE CHMOD" on the file it really shouldn't send back
an error. Are you possibly passing on the wrong path to the file?
