Default ftp uploaded files are zero bytes

Hi Everyone,

A week ago I client called me that he could not logon to his site anymore using ftp and his website gave a 403 access denied error code.
This was strange because up to that day he was develloping and uploading files perfectly

After checking this out, the rights on his root directory(web8) were not correct.
Once I set the rights so the website was available again he told me all the uploads he did ended with a zero byte file on the server.

I did foul around with chmod and chown to get it right, but even with 777 on the "web" directory the problem won't go away.

I can't find any real arrors related to this problem in the log files.
The ftp program also does not give me any errors while uploading accept for the fact that it askes me 3 times if I want to override the same file.

Is there something I have overlooked?
Any help would be mutch appreciated, thanks in advance

Rgds Edo

Please check in the ISPConfig web interface that the traffic quota of the site is not exceeded.
