vsftp not allowing upload

Have configured vsftp to allow local users to log.

so i created a grp called www
and a users www /home/www

Now i have /home/www chmod at 755

and chown -R www:users /home/www

Now i can log on through ftp brows but i can not log on. i checked to see if my user had privliage, made sure his primary grp was www but it still will not allow me to write files through ftp @ /home/www

Is there a step i forgot?

What are your settings in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

This file is pretty well commented, at least in RedHat/Fedora. For users to upload, this must be enabled:
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.

yep did that, what i did after a while was re-creat the grp and users and that got it to work. i must have done something wrong when i was setting up users and there group.
