Re: ProFTPd; how to set up write access for home dirs

proftpd, like most ftpds use filesystem permissions when dealing with
normal users, proftpd has the option to deny overwrites, which i
(think?) is default(see /etc/proftpd.conf)  for the anonymous user
permissions it is treated as the user  'ftp' in most cases, and the root
directory for anonymous users is ftp's home directory.
