vsftpd umask settings


Hello All,
I wish to create a vsftp system where local users can upload files via ftp but cannot delete them via ftp. I've tried setting umask to 0277 which does indeed give the uploaded files the expected permissions of 400 ie readonly. Unfortunately vsftpd still deletes the file as requested by an ftp client logged on with the local users credentials.

I'm running vsftpd 2.04 on suse 10 via xinetd

Thanks

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
