I am trying to follow the instructions here
to add an FTP user to my Ubuntu VPS. Can anyone please tell me does this look ok? Also it does not seem to mention adding the FTP user to a group so is that not necessary?
Give necessary permissions to the folder that you want to upload and download files to:
$ chmod -R 777 /var/www/example.com/httpdocs
Create an FTP user called "ftp_testuser":
$ useradd -d /var/www/example.com/httpdocs ftp_testuser
Give password for the created user “ftp_testuser”:
$ passwd ftp_testuser
