ftp problem (cannot upload) to fedora with plesk

Since a couple of days, I can't upload anything anymore to the plesk server on linux.  I've checked the proftp.conf but that hasn't changed in 6 months. For testing I gave the user shell access and with WinSCP I can transfer files.

Download via FTP goes well.

As I'm far from a Linux expert, I'm quite stuck.

Thanks in advance for your support

The issue is resolved, the cause was a different network adapter which has also internet access and became the primary route, so it was spoofing.

You are probably getting some error message - paste it here. Without this information, we may only guess - it can be permission issue, or quota was exceeded or something changed on server. Provide error message you are getting.
Some informations from proftpd logfile can be helpful also (additionally, you may also check xferlog).

What about this error message I asked? The one you are getting on client.
Attach your /usr/local/psa/var/log/xferlog file.
Put into your proftpd.conf file following lines:
DebugLevel 9
SystemLog /usr/local/psa/var/log/proftpd.log
You may of course use any path you want - just make sure, that proftpd has proper permissions to that path to create its logfile and write to it.
After adding these two lines, restart your proftpd server (as it's run from (x)inetd you have to restart your (x)inetd process).
Then, try to upload some file.
After this, attach here your newly created proftpd.log (do not paste its content, as it can be quite big - DebugLevel set to 9 is the most verbose).
