In Usermin, all file uploads are always done with the permissions of the logged in user. There isn't any way to specify a different user, sorry.

I’m trying to mimic functionality we had in Webmin in our new Usermin set up.


I need to allow users to upload files to specific directories on a Unix server, but I need the owner id/group to be a specific user.  In Webmin we ran the upload as that user.  In Usermin I’m not seeing the same option.


Is this a possible configuration option?
