i'm trying to figure out this problem:

2014-04-07 14:00:58,628 srv proftpd[10143] srv (pfsense.localdomain[192.168.0.1]): FTP session opened.

2014-04-07 14:01:13,782 srv proftpd[10091] srv (pfsense.localdomain[192.168.0.1]): FTP session closed.

I have made a folder on my filesystem 'srv' with sub folders like 'user1', 'user2' and so on.

drwxrwxrwx  19 root root  4096 Mar  5 20:05 srv

Each user has their home directoty set to 'user1', 'user2' and so on.

drwx---r-x 189 user1   users     4096 Apr  3 11:34 user1

why /srv needs to be 777? –  c4f4t0r Apr 7 at 14:22
