    When you create a new vhost, it creates an FTP user for that domain as well. However, I've just noticed that this user doesnt seem to have write permission in that domain's directory. How do I change that?

    Thanks.

    Nginx 1.13.x
    MariaDB 5.5
    The pure-ftpd virtual ftp user is locked to /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/ and below and you can see the specific details including how to use pure-pw command tool at Beta Branch - Centmin Mod .08 beta + pure-ftpd virtual FTP user support | Centmin Mod Community

    but by default you should have access to /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/ and below it where domain.com is your domain

    edit: double checked and i have no problems using pure-ftpd virtual ftp user login to create directories and upload files to /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/

    Yes unless they started creating some folders using root user I think.
