home dir vsftpd
 
hai all,

I stay up all night just to make my vsftpd working but it did not! *sigh*. Can you guys help me? Where is the home dir of this ftp? the service is up but i can not browse to the home dir, i setup an anonymous login...

sandy 10-06-2003 07:54 PM

the home directory for anonymous user is , i think , /var/ftp.. ( dont remember exactly and also I'm not currently in linux machine). Also anonymous users are chrooted to their home-directory so that they cant access files outside their home directory.

==============================

sorry, i just copy all of the vsftpd.conf file.. hope you can help me..

sandy 10-07-2003 02:20 PM

Sorry I couldnt find any mistakes in your configuration.. The conf file is almost similar to mine also .. but when I type ftp://localhost it shows all the files in /var/ftp..

BTW what is the output of ftp://localhost.. Or try to do that from another comp if possible..

goutambaul 10-10-2003 05:44 AM

Is this happenning because the ls command is not properly setup for the ch-rooted area?

ilengna 10-14-2003 07:58 PM

you know what guys... i restart the vsftpd from /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart then it works!

newbies...

Thx alot guys..
