Need help with WuFTPd permission settings

I am in the process of setting up a RedHat7.2 FTP server with no choice of other distro, using wu-ftpd. All I need is one user to be able to remotely upload html files for a webserver. The client goes to the correct root directory upon login (/../pub/public), but when the client program attempts a file upload, I get an error something like this: "Error 533:Could not perform operation. Permission Denied by server(Upload)." The user (aptly named 'ftp') Is owner of both the pub and public directories, and the CH mod for both the directories is 777. I'm am really stumped here, and not being very linux savvy doesn't help much either.

I have edited the config files, Though I'm not sure If I did it 100 percent right. Though it can't be too hard, KDE has a gui interface for editing the FTP server. I'm almost positive it's a permission issue, I just can't figure out where I went wrong.

BTW: I can't change much of anything at all on this server. I work for an IT company and it's a client's server. So if you could stay within the parameters I have set that would be excellent.

If you need more Info, I can only access aim at the moment... Bassmanzackie101

Below is the FTP config file, Please do not try to use malisiously.

File: /../etc/ftpaccess

Any help or advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
