Quick Proftpd question...


Hello everyone!

I have a Proftpd server set up on my Mandrake box but have a quick question. This will be a private ftp server but about 400-500 people will be able to access it (not at the same time of course). I have the priviledges set up so that users can read and write but I do not want users to be able to delete files. If they want something deleted, they can ask me and I'll delete it for them. I want users to be able to read, write, rename, and create folders but not delete files/folders. How do I go about setting up the priviledges to do this?

Thanks in advance! You people rock!

-Shane

Something along the lines like this:

<Directory incoming/*>
<Limit DELE RMD XRMD>
DenyAll
</Limit>

<Limit RETR STOR RNTO MKD XMKD>
Allow?
</Limit>
</Directory>

There is documentation on the proftd website that descibes all this. http://www.proftpd.org/
The Allow? above could either be AllowUser or AllowGroup depending on how you want to set it up.
