proftpd allow user to specific folder


Here is my current proftpd.conf file

Code:
ServerName          "Gentoo FTP"
ServerType          standalone
DeferWelcome        off
DefaultServer       on
RequireValidShell   off

AuthPAM             off
AuthPAMConfig       ftp

Port                666

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.

Umask                           022

MaxInstances                    30

# Set the user and group under which the server will run.

User                            nobody
Group                           nobody

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory />
  AllowOverwrite                on
</Directory>



# chroot for all users of the group ftpuser
DefaultRoot ~ ftpuser

# grant login only for members of the group
<Limit LOGIN>
DenyGroup !ftpuser
</Limit>

# disable root login and require a valid shell (from /etc/shells)
<Global>
RootLogin off
RequireValidShell on
</Global>

UseReverseDNS off
IdentLookups off

# Logging formats
LogFormat default "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b"
LogFormat auth "%v [%P] %h %t \"%r\" %s"
LogFormat write "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b"

# activate logging

# every login
ExtendedLog /var/log/ftp_auth.log AUTH auth

# file/dir access
ExtendedLog /var/log/ftp_access.log WRITE,READ write

# forr paranoid (big logfiles!)
#ExtendedLog /var/log/ftp_paranoid.log ALL default
Seeing my config, I would like ALL users who are part of ftpuser group access to /var/ftp for read/write access so..

This is what I did:
groupadd ftpuser
chown ftp:ftpuser /var/ftp/

useradd -d /var/ftp -g ftpuser -s /bin/false john
passwd john

now I can login as john with my password, and end up in that directory...I thought if I was in the same group that I changed the directory's group ownership to that I would be able to read/write... I can only read and cannot upload files.

Hope This explains basicly what Im trying to do. Much Thanks.

You did chown, but did you chmod 660 /var/ftp to give the owner ftp and the group ftpuser read/write access?

You can always try 777 and then trim down your permissions if it is indeed a permission problem...

I logged in with scp, I havn't 100% memorized all the chmod numbers, so selected chmod 770, graphicly, giving owner and group execute also...now I can upload/download and delete once I login...Thanks a ton.
