FTP permissions

Hi, all of a sudden I'm having problems with ftp on my Linux Red Hat 7.2 server. I'm able to log in but not able to transfer any files. I checked some of the directories and the permissions seemed normal. It looks like the daemon is proftpd. Should I stop and start? if so how?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To restart the server:

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

Check your log files to see if any error messages come back
