proftpd.conf UserOwner doesn't work

ServerName         "ProFTPD"
ServerType         standalone
DefaultServer         on
Port            21
Umask 002
MaxInstances         30
User            nobody

<Directory /opt/lampp/>
  AllowOverwrite      on
GroupOwner root
UserOwner nobody

DefaultRoot /opt
UserPassword nobody ChiIf5sp0L4Sk

As code, for uploaded file, userowner should be nobody, but it is under my account.

Please help.

I found the solution:,1207.0.html
My guess is that you're running proftpd on Linux, and are encountering mod_cap's abilities:

To test this theory, you might try adding the following to your proftpd.conf:

<IfModule mod_cap.c>
CapabilitiesEngine off
