It's possible that the user www doesn't exist or doesn't have access rights
to the directory.
This works on my system:
path = /tmp
writable = yes
force user = ftp
/tmp is owned by root but has drwxrwxrwx (777) rights. Files and folders
take on the group ftp belongs to. You don't need the masks as the user is
