Proftpd: UserOwner and GroupOwner not working (can't chown)


Hi.

I have proftpd 1.3.1_rc2-rc3 up and running with an anonymous user tech (alias of ftp) with password.

My objective is to have all files uploaded by tech chown to apache:apache because the ftp account will be used to host web pages (html , php).

This is /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf:
Code:
ServerName              "NG-001"
ServerType              standalone
DefaultServer           on
RequireValidShell       off
AuthPAM                 on
AuthPAMConfig           ftp

UseReverseDNS off
IdentLookups off

Port                    21
PassivePorts            51000 51999

Umask                   022
MaxClients              20
MaxInstances            20
MaxLoginAttempts        3
RootLogin               off


Port                    21
PassivePorts            51000 51999

Umask                   022
MaxClients              20
MaxInstances            20
MaxLoginAttempts        3
RootLogin               off

ServerAdmin             support@noisebleed.pt

SystemLog               /var/log/proftpd.log
ServerLog               /var/log/proftpd.server.log
TransferLog             /var/log/proftpd.transfer.log

User                    ftp
Group                   ftp


DefaultRoot ~

<Directory />
        AllowOverwrite          on
</Directory>

<Anonymous /var/www/tech>
  User                  ftp
  Group                 ftp
  UserAlias             tech ftp
  AnonRequirePassword   on
  RequireValidShell     off
  MaxClients            10
  DisplayLogin          "message.txt"
  DisplayChdir          .message

  GroupOwner    apache
  UserOwner     apache


  <Limit LOGIN>
    AllowUser   ftp
    DenyAll
  </Limit>

  # Hide all files owned by user 'root'
  HideUser                      root

  <Limit READ WRITE DIRS STOR CWD CDUP>
    AllowUser   ftp
    DenyAll
  </Limit>

</Anonymous>
When running proftpd with
Code:
# proftpd -nd9
this is showned:
Code:
noisebleed.localnet (10.17.1.19[10.17.1.19]) - chown(/Logo_Noisebleed_Oficial.png) as root failed: Operation not permitted
I have proftpd compiled with:
Code:
USE="mysql ncurses nls opensslcrypt pam radius ssl tcpd -acl -authfile -clamav -hardened -ifsession -ipv6 -ldap -noauthunix -postgres -rewrite (-selinux) -shaper -sitemisc -softquota -vroot -xinetd"
Does anyone got the UserOwner directive working properly?

It may be easier to create the user tech and go that way or you may need something like;
Code:
<Anonymous ~ftp/sub/dir/>
  AnonRequirePassword on
  RequireValidShell off
  User ftp
  Group nobody

#  UserPassword ftp encpasswd
  UserPassword ftpuser1 encpasswd1
  UserPassword ftpuser2 encpasswd2
  (...)

  UserAlias ftpuser1 ftp
  UserAlias ftpuser2 ftp
  (...)
</Anonymous>
just a guess ...

Hi. Thanks for helping.

The user tech is just an alias.

When I use the ftp user as username the same error ("chown(/Logo_Noisebleed_Oficial.png) as root failed: Operation not permitted") occurs. Don't know why.

Should I blame the mask?
Code:
Umask                   022
