I am having a continuing issue with Linux regarding the setup of FTP permissions. I am using vsftp and fedora 13, I have two users userA and userB I have set the folder permissions to ftp:ftp and 644. Both userA and userB are members of the ftp group yet when I create a folder and try to ftp it up I get a permission denied error. If I set the folder to userA:userA and 644 then userA can ftp anything and create anything but userB cannot. Also note that I have the vsftpd.conf configured to allow write and I am not using the chroot_list.
My question is what should be the correct folder permission settings for FTP to allow multiple users to create files/folders within the ftp directory?
