    proftpd config - allow a user to access \var\www\html


    Hi,

    I am setting up a webserver. I am using the \var\www\html directory to store the web files and have setup a user "www_ftp" and set its home directory as \var\www\html

    The user can log on ok but can't create/delete or upload anything - all is says is permission denied. Why is this? and how can I change this so "www_ftp" and have control over the folder?

    Any help would be gratefully recieved as this is very confusing.
    Thanks,

    James
