bummer! my hard drive went kaput so you know what I have been doing since I did not have a image made yet!

Anyway, I have rebuilt the system and software and solved most of the ftp problems I was having before. I have one last problem I can't get figured out.

I want a directory where people can upload files. I thought this configuration would do it in the /plant directory but it does not. When I try it I get
550 [filename] Permission Denied
here is my config file anyone see what I am doing wrong?
# This is the ProFTPD configuration file
