vsftp uploading

I'm wondering if any one can help me work this out, I've just installed vftp server on my web server, I know I can down load from it with out a problem, can't work out how to allow it to upload, the user I have tried making it as a root member, but that did not work, tried giving the dir a 777 acess and that did not work.

Any ideas were I have gone wrong.


(by the way this is runnig on a opensuse 10.3 install)

I am trying how to use pure-ftpd with mysql virtal hosts, but as yet can't work out how to do it.
