Description Gerald Teschl 2001-03-09 13:36:10 UTC

In the latest wu-ftpd I noticed that regular ftp users cannot
delete/overwrite files.
This worked fine before. Moreover, I tried to enable delete/overwrite for
all users in /etc/ftpacces but it still won't work.

User error.

Non-duplicatable.  Close this ticket.

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2001-03-13 19:28:11 UTC
Nope. No user error. This is a default installation (no configs changed):

[gerald@soliton gerald]$ ncftp -u gerald localhost
