Please forgive me if this is a stupid question .... but I'm more of a Windows guy than Linux.
Trying to get FTP to work and having trouble with permissions, I think.
The user is userx. It is in the userx group as well as the root group. I even set root as the primary group for userx.
I can connect fine, but when I try to transfer a file I get "553 Could not create file."
The directory I'm trying to write to (/opt/installs/) is owned by root. Shouldn't userx be able to write to this directory? If I open up a terminal window and su userx, I can write fine. But I can't FTP.
Thanks for any help.
