proftpd chown as root failed
Has anyone ever had this error in proftpd:
Chown() as root failed.

My Situation is I have a user that is a member of the webedit group and he is not the owner of the file so when he uploads I need the file's owner to change. So In proftpd my configuration looks like this:

ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
ServerType standalone
#ServerType inetd
DefaultServer on
Port 21
Umask 002
MaxInstances 30
User nobody
Group nogroup
SystemLog /var/log/proftpd.log
TransferLog /var/log/xferlog
DefaultRoot ~
UseReverseDNS off
DefaultTransferMode binary

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /*>
AllowOverwrite on
GroupOwner webedit
UserOwner djhass
AllowUser matt
AllowUser root
AllowGroup webedit
<Limit ALL>
AllowUser matt
AllowGroup webedit

I assune it has something to do with the GroupOwner Directive and the UserOwner Directive. Any help I could be given would be apperciated.

cat >> /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf << "EOF"
<IfModule mod_cap.c>
CapabilitiesEngine off

works fine ;)
