from the man page for rsyncd.conf:
       read only
              The  "read  only" option determines whether clients
              will be able to upload files or not. If "read only"
              is  true  then  any attempted uploads will fail. If
              "read only" is false then uploads will be  possible
              if  file  permissions on the server allow them. The
              default is for all modules to be read only.

Note that read only is the default. You'll need to explicitly set read
only to false if you want the module to be writeable.
