VSFTPD - can download but cant upload.

Hey all, I have set up an FTP server with access to /home/user1 which I set permissions to 777. But whenever I try to upload to it, I get an

451 Failure writing to local file.
Error closing data transfer

Now this sounds like a permission problem but I cant find it.

This is my ls -l

drwxrwxrwx 5 user1 user1 4096 Sep 6 17:54 user1

Im a newbie, did I miss something?
