Success!! Thanks for this info. I have now disabled SELinux protection for
the FTP daemon and I am now able to access the user home files.

I note that even though proftpd is running and I am able to access user home
directory when attempting to view server details in webmin I get an error
message as follows...

The program /usr/sbin/proftpd does not appear to be the ProFTPD server.
Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect. Output
from the command /usr/sbin/proftpd -v was :

This is a message that at one stage was fixed by installing the update from
the webmin site. However, after uninstalling proftpd and then reinstalling
it (in my efforts to solve the access problem) the message has reoccurred
and will not go even after installing the updates from the webmin site....

I am running proftpd Version 1.2.9 (the later version would not work for me
and this version will so I am using it)

Can I make a suggestion first:

This /is/ probably an SELinux problem - the default policy is quite
sensibly restrictive for a standard web/ftp server, but not for a
hosting server.

You are probably running into SELinux issues here, and the easiest way
to deal with that is to relax the SELinux security, not give up and use
a different version.

During the install[1] it is possible to select one of three modes for
SELinux: enabled, disabled or 'warn me.'

You can probably change the mode to 'warn me' after install as well --
check the documentation for how.

That way, rather than just denying access, SELinux will log a message
about the issue.

Then, consider reporting it to the SELinux/FC4 maintainers, since they
*will* care about this issue. At the least they will probably improve
the documentation. :)

Regards,
Daniel

Footnotes:
[1] Possibly only an "advanced" install.
