I think you need something specific in /etc/ftpd.conf, look through
ftpd.conf(5) for info...

     upload class [off]
           If class is `none'' or off is given, disable the following com-
           mands: APPE, STOR, and STOU, as well as the modify commands:
           DELE, MKD, RMD, RNFR, and UMASK.  Otherwise, enable them.
