Hi,

I'm trying to setup a ftp server for my surveillance cameras. However I realized that vsftpd throws an error, if the users home is writable. on the other hand, if I disable the write access, the camera cannot create its folder.

Are there any other solutions, like ftp servers using virtual users?

I thought vsftp was properly configured not by explicitly changing directory permissions, but by using the vsftp config file so that users are allowed to write to their assigned dirs...?
