SUMMARY : ftp permission denied to write into folders created by the ft p session.

/apps was the mount point. I changed its permissions
and remounted and it worked. If you try to delete a
directory without aforementioned changes then you get
the following error
rm: cannot determine if this is an ancestor of the
current working directory

Thank you,
