It works only if the file is owned by the account username.

Hello :)

The inability to update permissions on a file to 0444 or lower via FTP is often the result of the following value in the /etc/pure-ftpd.conf file:

Code:
CustomerProof yes
You will need to configure this option to "No" to allow this level of permission change through FTP. Remember to restart the FTP service after making any changes to the configuration.

Thank you.
