Ftp


I am nooby in linux but have fixed all my problems thanks to this forum. Installed Slack with my own hands ;] But I can't understand nothing about ftp on linux.

1) I whant to check if my ftp exis in my linux and is running at starp up.
2) I whant to know how can I create acc and pass for users.
3) I whant to know how can I redirect the user ftp folder to my apach and mysql. Somethink like: the user have web site he have dns example.org and I give him my IP and acc,pass for shell and ftp. So he login and put his web site files in the ftp folder and redirect domain to my IP. How can possibly do that all ?

Please, post a commands with comments.

Thanks very much.

1)
check /etc/inetd.conf for a line refering to ftp; if it's commented, it's not started and you should remove the # to start the ftp service
next you can restart inetd
2)
adduser (no manpage)
check also useradd, grouppadd, usermod, userdel and a few others using the manpages
3)
don't know

You can't run it, it's a configuration file. Use less to view it or your favourite editor to modify it; vi example below.

Type the underlined commands
vi /etc/inetd.conf to edit file with vi from a commandline
once the file is opened
/ftp to search for the word 'ftp'
go to beginning of the line by pressing 0 (zero)
x to remove the '#'
:wq to write and quit

use q! if you don't want to save changes.

noone ? ;(
Maybe I need to tell other way.
I have IP: 127.0.0.1
I have many ftp and many of user acc.
In each user acc is web site.
And for example I have 10 user accounts with 10 diffrent pages.
But I have only one IP. How can I redirect for example: user1 he have folder /user1/ the folder contain web site, and this user have domain name www.example1user1.com . He redirect the domain name to my IP 127.0.0.1. And all other 10 users do the same think. So I have 10 domains on my 127.0.0.1 IPz. The question what I want to know is: What can I do to - domain name example5user5.com open web site on user5 folder ?
This was the general question what I wanted to know.

I think that what your looking for is called 'virtual hosting'. Enter the keywords name_of_your_ftpserver and "virtual host" in a search engine and see what shows up.
The name of the server is the last word on the ftp-line in inetd.conf
Further you can read the documentation of your ftp server.

Another serach can be name_of_your_ftpserver and webserver.

A link that I found using the keyword howto webserver is Linux Web Server Configuration Tutorial.
