    proftpd.conf

    See /etc/proftpd.conf , specially betwen directives :

    <Anonymous>
    ...
    </Anonymous>

    by example, for incoming directory

    <Directory incoming>
    <Limit STOR>
    AllowAll
    </Limit>
    <Limit WRITE READ>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

    Link in cpanel under manage anonymous ftp.

    Go to your cpanel and click on Manage Anonymous FTP then you will find a link
    Allow anonymous upload to ftp://ftp.domain.com/incoming/tr>

    Put a check in the box and it works.

    Thanks techark

    I enabled that option, but I'm still getting the same error when attempting to uploading anything to incoming/

    553 Anonymous users may not overwrite existing files

    This server is running pure-ftpd however, but my /etc/pure-ftpd.conf looks to be configured correctly for anonymous users.

    Anyone else having this problem? :(

    Yes, this is a little ridiculous

    Anon FTP is something that shouldn't be so difficult. Has anybody ever gotten this to work???

    Not sure exactly how that relates to the error:

    553 anonymous users may not overwrite existing files
