O== THE WEBPAGE of PROFTPD says this :

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 The checks in question will specifically prevent any attempts to upload files into the /etc and /lib directories, or attempts to delete, create, rename, link, or otherwise try to change anything in these directories. All attempts to make modifications will be rejected with "Permission denied" errors. In addition, the following message will be logged (at debug level 2):

  WARNING: attempt to use sensitive path '/etc/file' within chroot '/home/user', rejecting
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

O== 

The path, the file is in, starts with /lib/ BUT its not the /lib/ of the chroot
proftpd puts the user into. It's *A* path named lib in the users home directory 
structure.

Proftpd shows the correct full path  as : 

/opt/root/home/THEMAINUSERNAME/public_html/lib/view/page/viewstate.product.class.php

the chroot directory in this config states public_html as base directory. public_html/lib/ becomes /lib/ of the chroot in this case => sensitive directory per definition of the proftpd devs.

In the real world, it's just a simple directory with no potentional harm of any sort.
Please fix this. 

Solution: 

an option to disable the above behavior WITHOUT disabling the chroot at all,
and enforce this ruleset : 

check if the documentroot is a symlink ( of anykind to anywhere ),
proceed only if it is not one,
proceed only if documentroot is equal or a subdirectory of the users home.

*solved*
