I am pretty sure this there is an easy solution to this problem but I just can't seem to find the answer.
Here is my issue. I have installed vsftpd on my ubuntu 10.04. I created a group and a user for this and set up the password. I can now ftp to my server and read all the files I want; however, I cannot write/edit/delete any folders. I have made sure I have changed the group/user of /var/www to the newly created group and given 777 permissions recursively. I still can't edit/upload/delete anything at all.
Can anyone help with this?
