Hi all,

How can I set the permissions for a FTP user? I am using the command:

Code:
adduser -h /root/ftphomes/user user


I am able to log into the FTP server and download file, but it won't let me save files into it and also create folders. It says "Permission denied".

Does anyone have any idea of what I have to do? I have tried to change the directory permission but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks,

usafape

Puppy runs as root
so the adduser is not used

I have added another hard drive with linux partition and I added an user by:

Code:
adduser -h /mnt/hdb5 user


I still have the same problem.

I only can read the folders, nothing else.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Solved it!

The problem was with linux's file/directory permissions.

BetaFTPD works like a charm.

Thanks all,
