vsftpd upload problem in RH


hi all,
I have installed vsftpd and have started the server .
I have created a subdir upload in /var/ftp/pub/upload.
The file permissions on dirs are :
/var/ftp & /var/ftp/pub - 775
/var/ftp/pub/upload - 773


I have entered the following directives in vsftpd.conf file :
anonymous_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=0022
anon_umask=0007
file_open_mode=0777
anon_upload_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
ls_recurse_enable=YES


I have restarted vsftpd to ensure that the .conf file has been read.
But when I login as anonymous and do a put after changing to the /pub/upload dir, I get a permission denied message.
What am I doing wrong ?!?!?
Thanks in advance
nishith

Ownership

Look at who owns the upload directories and whether the persons who will be logging in are in the upload directories' owner's group. I don't know that is your problem, but that is what stood out from your problem description.

thanks for your response,
But I am missing something maybe ? I have set the permissions on upload dir to 773 which gives write and execute permissions for everyone ( i.e all) .
Should the owner matter now ?
Also I have set the parent dirs to 775 and hence allowed read and execute permissions to all
Any thing wrong with that ?
