proftpd upload problem help help

Mandrake v9.1
Proftpd latest version
Apache v2

I have been trying to fix this for many days now with no luck. I hope someone can help me. I am able to login to the ftp server and download from the server; but the problem is I cannot make directories or upload to the server. I have tried everything I can think off and looked over all the posts and canít figure this thing out. I am uploading to my webserver to update my pages. Hope you guys can help


Here is my proftpd.conf

# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename
it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a
single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you
have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
ServerType standalone
DefaultServer on

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port 21

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new
dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask 022

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of
child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this
ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an
inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes
per service
# (such as xinetd).
MaxInstances 30

# Set the user and group under which the server will
User root
Group root

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.

<Anonymous ~ftp>
User ftp

# We want clients to be able to login with
"anonymous" as well as "ftp"

# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 10

# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and
'.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
DisplayLogin welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message

# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
<Limit WRITE>
