vsftpd - new directories are chmod:ed 700


Hello!

I want my anonymous ftp users to be able to not only create directories but to remove them as well. But when an anoynoums user creates a directory it is owned by the ftp user and group and is chmod:ed 700. So the anonymous can create but cannot delete. I know that it's a good thing in most cases but not in mine.

So, I want my anonymous ftp users to be able to remove directories in directories where they can create them... and I don't want to chmod every time a directory is created.

My /etc/vsftpd.conf looks like this

anonymous_enable=YES
listen=YES
write_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
local_umask=000 # it was worth a try
anon_upload_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
ftpd_banner=Welcome to Samels ftp


Thanks for your help!

vsftpd should have an option to setup the default umask..

it worked!

It worked fine!
I put
anon_umask=000
and when I did ls -l it was freedom to everyone, weeee =)
drwxrwxrwx 2 ftp ftp 4096 2005-05-22 18:27 foobar

However, the strangest thing happened... when I created the directory foobar (after I had restarted vsftpd)
and then tried to remove it, I couldn't. I used gftp and I got

RMD /change/foobar

550 Permission denied.

(foobar is in /home/ftp/change/)

How can I fix this? Or is it just gftp?
