vsFTP user permissions


I have currently managed to get a Redhat Linux 9 machine running with apache php mysql and a couple of php modules installed. I have also managed to get vsFTP installed and configured to run off user accounts on linux with each account chrooting to a folder:

this is an example of the file structure for 2 site folders I have set up:


I also have users setup like this

Group: ftp-users

User: fred
User: bob

the sites folder + every folder above that has chgrp set to ftp-users

sites has chown as fred has chown has fred has chown bob

the problem i'm having is that I want fred to be able to do everything and anything from the sites folder up and bob to only beable to access up

the problem I am having is that fred can do everything but in

Is there something I am missing (hopefully i've explained the problem ok) ?
