Please follow this link there:
Hello everybody. I've been trying these past few days to really start learning linux, so I've postponed posting this until I'd done all the research I possibly could.
I have a laptop running Windows XP, and a desktop running Slackware 10 Kernel 2.4.26.
My laptop currently runs Apache, PHP, and mySQL, and I'm trying to get these services off of it so that my development is on the laptop while my testing and serving is done off of the desktop. I got the wireless card in my desktop set up last night (a pain. a horrible pain), so I'm ready to accept connections to the desktop.
Now I want to set up an FTP access to my Apache htdocs directory, so that I can just upload the files I create on the laptop to the Linux desktop for testing.
I've been working with vsftpd for the past four hours, and I can't figure out how to make it do what I want. I've had it running under inetd and standalone, but I can't figure out the options. It works, but only for Anonymous FTP, and it allows all the users on the Earth into the interface. All I need is one user, with access to the htdocs directory.
Can anybody 1) understand my problem , 2) help me?
