vsftp upload how to??


Hello to everyone,

I have made a user with "useradd username -d /www".

I can upload via filezilla normally in the www directory which is 755 permission. However, I cannot upload to any sub-directory without changing the permission to 777.

If I login as root then I can aldo upload to any DIR/SubDir.

Any idea why this happening?

Many thanks

It's a permissions issue. With a 755 permissions, only the owner has write permissions, so I guess subdirs are not owned by your user.
You can do a
Code:
chown -R username /www

It worked, many many thanks!

I have read that is no good to have multiple users owning the same folder due to disk/resources usage, is that true?

Have a good day

Nah. Besides you cannot have multiple users owning a directory or file. There is always one that owns it and then a group and the world that may or may not have rwx rights on it.
