Has anyone got FTP working so that an
external party can FTP to /var/www ?
Iâ€™ve been trying for ages. Iâ€™m easily on my
50th link from google searches and Iâ€™ve tried
ProFTPd and some others but just cant get it working.
Iâ€™m currently running ProFTPd (using the
GADMIN GUI). I gave up trying to create a dedicated user for
this party and just used the logon details of the main account
on the server. In ProFTPd Iâ€™ve assigned them permissions for
the /var/www directory, but that doesnâ€™t work. They just get a
permission denied when changing folders in their FTP client.
So I used chown and chgrp to give that account permission to
the /var/www directory but that hasnâ€™t worked.
SCP isnâ€™t an option, though I havenâ€™t had
much more joy with getting WinSCP working either, though Iâ€™m
told thatâ€™s a limitation on WinSCP rather than SCP as a whole.
Could someone spare 5 mins to give me some advice on how this
should be set up ?
sudo aptitude install vsftpd and then
netstat -tualp | grep 21
see if ftp is working on port 21
