I am using an Ubuntu 10.04.4 with Plesk 11 installed.

My customer has a lot of domains, each one found under /var/www/vhosts/ and for each one an FTP user exists.

I want to give my customer a single FTP user account, with which he will be able to upload data to any directory under /var/www/vhosts.

Of course, newly created files should be created as the user to which the domain belongs.

I created a config in /etc/proftpd.include:

<Directory /var/www/vhosts/DOMAINNAME/httpdocs/>
    UserOwner DOMAINUSER
    GroupOwner psaserv
    umask 002
</Directory>

This should keep the correct user and owner on newly created files. However, this doesn't work for me.

The new master FTP User is able to login via FTP and I can see all directories under /var/www/vhosts. But whenever I try to upload a file, I get a "Permission Denied" error in the FTP programm.

How can I configure a master FTP user? Where can I see logs of the proftpd server for this error? (I only see in syslog, that a ftp user logged in.)
