Two users on vsftpd one read one write.

Hey I just created an ftp server but I figured out that read/write permissions is pretty much black and white, you can either enable it or disable it in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

Is there a way to give one user Read permissions for a folder and give another user Read/Write permissions to the same exact folder?

The only way I"ve found to do this is to use access control lists.


It's for Fedora 2 but should still work.

Your issue is a great reason to use Proftpd instead of vsftpd. Proftpd is much more configurable.
