Squirrelmail vacation_local plugin upload problem

On Slackware 12

Sendmail 8.14
Squirrelmail 1.4.10a
Vacation_local 2.0-14
VSFTPD 2.0.5

Squirrelmail works, and vsftpd works separately.

When configuring, I had created the ~squirrelmail/attachments (I also created an ~/attach/ directory too, because I had seen reference to that somewhere)

I am a little confused about the install of the vacation_local package. I basically unzipped the directory, checked the, ran the make, and make install
went into and selected it.

when users go into Options > Vacation Message in SM, the top line has
Error: Unable to upload file. Please contact your system administrator.
the /var/log/httpd/error_log shows:
[Tue Aug 07 11:37:38 2007] [error] [client X.X.X.X] PHP Warning: ftp_put() [<a href='function.ftp-put'>function.ftp-put</a>]: Permission denied. in /var/www/htdocs/squirrelmail-1.4.10a/plugins/vacation_local/vac_init.php on line 503, referer: http://x/squirrelmail-1.4.10a/src/options.php
This is off of a pretty fresh install. Mail services are the first thing I have worked on for this machine.

What rights is it requiring, and what directories is it requiring to ftp the files?

Can I look anywhere else to see what specifically might be the problem?

thanks for any direction

I also checked my php.ini file, and
; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
file_uploads = On
