FTP Uploads

I am using proftpd and can login etc... the problem is allowing people to upload files to a directory called /plant. I have this set in my proftpd.conf but every time I try to load a file from my windows box using WS_FTP I get Permisson Denied.

Anyone see what I am doing wrong? or suggestions?
# This is the ProFTPD configuration file

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30.  If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections

  DisplayLogin			/welcome.msg

# Some more cosmetic and not vital stuff
  DirFakeUser			on ftp
  DirFakeGroup			on ftp

# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot

# An upload directory that allows storing files but not retrieving
# or creating directories.
   <Directory /plant/*>
	  AllowOverwrite		no
	<Limit READ>
	<Limit STOR>

# Logging for the anonymous transfers

User nobody
Group nobody
I am no pro at this, but it seems you have nobody set in the user group to allow uploading priviledges. "I could be wrong" someone quote me on this one to make sure it's right.

these lines are marked out with #. Below that for upload it has the user and group set to ftp. Your post gave me thought though and I changed the user & group lines you quoted from nobody to ftp, unmarked them, and that didn't work either.
