Question Upload Configuration for FTP

I've set up a ftp, and trying to configure a certain user that this user is allowed to upload into the directory /home/ftp/pub
But I don't know what's going wrong, so would someone plz tell me where to configure what.

I'm working with Linux Redhat 7.2 and the ftp i'm using is wu-ftp.

Thanks for helping

Check the permissions

First of all, you should check that the user has the permissions to write to that directory.

Make the user part of the same group as the FTP username, and then do a

chmod g+wrx /home/ftp

If you don't want anybody else who belongs to that particular group to have any access, create another group and make the ftp username and the second username part of it.
