vsftpd single upload folder


Alright, I have vsftpd set up just the way I want it, but with one thing lacking. an upload folder.

I have a user, say, ftpuser, who can log in, view the files (he's chroot'ed into /var/ftp), download, whatever.
What I want to do is allow upload permissions to ONE folder, /var/ftp/upload
I don't think this matters, but this is a mounted folder as per:
mount --bind /mnt/nfsz/upload /var/ftp/upload
it should just work as a normal folder in that directory. I see how to give access to upload everywhere, but I haven't found how to allow upload access to just one folder.
Any help is appreciated.

Hi Ringz,

do you tried to change permissions of the directories ?

Read the documentation of chmod (man chmod).
Deny the creating and deleting of files and directories in /var/ftp and all subdirectories (chmod -w -R /var/ftp).
Allow the creating and deleting of files and directories in the upload-directory (chmod +w /var/ftp/upload).
In the configfile of vsftp enable the upload ...

awesome. thought it had to be something (else) in the vsftpd config file. now comes enabling write permissions when my nfs server disallows it. that's a whole different problem, but I bet I can figure it out pretty easily.
