How to kill a server with dev/build

Ok, I uploaded my recently build website to the demo-server and did a dev/build.

Oops! Somehow, the entire server ran into it's memory limits, killing everything with it. Not my intention!

What went wrong:
Assets-folder didn't get the proper permissions for some reason!

This problem sometimes occures in a PureFTPD environment I noticed after some testing with my own sandbox.

So, when uploading a new site, it's always good to check if all the permissions are correct. This will save you a lot of trouble!

It's simple, almost stupid, but not checking and killing a VPS, does not make a happy hosting-company!
