    FTP new Folder Create Issue


    Centos 6.4, Proftpd installed, i can able to login via FTP user which i created from the OS "USERS AND GROUPS".

    i can logn to user home directory, i can upload files, and can do anything except creating new folders.

    it give me following error for example i try create new folder by name testfolder

    STATUS:>  	[12/29/2013 9:42:28 PM] PWD skipped. Current folder: "/public_html".
    COMMAND:>	[12/29/2013 9:42:28 PM] MKD testfolder
    		[12/29/2013 9:42:28 PM] 550 testfolder: No such file or directory
    ERROR:>   	[12/29/2013 9:42:28 PM] Requested action not taken (e.g., file or directory not found, no access).
    ERROR:>   	[12/29/2013 9:42:28 PM] Can't create following directory: "/public_html/testfolder".
    check back logs showing pam Session of user login in the /logs/secure .

    is there any setting that i missed ?, everything is default except i added Passv ports 30000:35000 in proftpd conf file because i m using CSF and already allowed the ports. and everything is correct, permissions, owner etc.

    Any advise ?

    Two places to check :

    first check the config file for the ftp client. There are usually settings that control what users can do once logged in. I know it sounds crazy but there are different settings to manage uploads and other actions.

    next check ownership of the folder, I think its chown -R user:group of the folder in question. Definitely look up that one to make sure.

    @helix247, thanks for reply but it was not the permissions issue as i already stated in my first post.

    Its a bug in New proftpd version 1.44, Users are not more able to create/upload directory/folder if they are chroot.

    If anyone have the issue like mine you should remove the proftpd and install version 1.33 that will work like charm.
