    Anyone know how it is possible to set an FTP account for a subdirectory under public_html to allow users to download files only, not to upload?

    Using chmod to remove world and group write permissions does not work.

    Ideas?

    Anyone? I'm sure I'm not the only one who's needed to do this...

    Thanks mate!

    I was hoping for something that would not involve amending the main proftpd config as it's yet another thing to remember when moving accounts between servers and all that. Ah well...
