vsftp & user permissions
Posted on 2003-11-18
Something strange is happening on my system.
When I ftp into my server as a user, it chroots me to the home folder of the user, show me the contents etc, allows me to upload, but allows no write. ONly some of the system users are exhibiting this behaviour, while others work as they used to.
I have tried deleting the users that gives me this problem, but the problenm persists as soon as I add the user again.
Even new users does the same, ie, i can FTP in, but cannot upload or delete files already in folder.
NOTE: All the file permissions are checked. I have done a chmod -R 777 * on the files in the folder to make sure that it is not simply a matter of incorrect permission or ownership. Also, I can log into the system with the same username/password and all seems fine, ie, I can create and delete files in the home folder with no problems, it's just when I ftp...
Does anyone have ideas?
At this stage it's not that bad, as the other users can still FTP etc, but if this is like a virus that will spread to toher users, I need to come up with solution fast.
