quick help with proftpd

Hi all,

I don't want anonymous logins so I have disabled that section in the proftpd config file,

I have created a user and this user can ftp into his home directory, the problem is he can not create new folders.. or upload anything,

I believe this is a problem with permissions.. something about unmask022, I have seen this in the config file but can not find any reference to this setting and what to change it too,

If someone could point me in the right direction that would be fantastic, many thanks

Just had a thought. could it be to do with the "denyAll" in the config file... or does that only apply to Anonymous... still having problem so if anyone can help that would be great..

#UserAlias anonymous ftp

# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 10

# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
DisplayLogin welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message

# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
<Limit WRITE>
