    i am running an pure-ftpd server,, with secure connections, it's allmost deployd on my server.

    my question is,, what rule do i have to put in
    /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf , to make sure users can NOT delete directory's
    and users can NOT create directory's

    i am not able to find that rule.

    The Pure-ftpd documentation is convoluted on how this task can be accomplished, but I believe I understand enough.

    There should be a line somewhere in a config file reading:

    ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd


    ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd

    and this is where you will want to add authentication arguments.

    Please note: I am taking a wild guess and I may not be correct.

    The appendage would be:

    Addition documentation individual to each flavor of user authentication can be found at:


    This is definitely guide material.
