Proftpd setup issues on Mandrake 10.1 with Apache 2
First, Thank you! for being here to help us newbies, we really do appreciate it.
A brief History:
I have been running Apache 2 on W2K for years, finally I'm ready to move into a more professional arena and have installed Mandrake 10.1 to get me there. I have successfully set up the Apache server and have a moderate comfort/understanding of the Linux world.
I have installed and setup Proftpd and it is running ok but I am unable to redirect the root directory to /var/www/html where the web site files reside. Upon connecting I am given a permissions error from my ftp client. I think this is related to the directory permissions on the folder, presently the owner is listed as "Apache". If it sounds like I'm right, how do I change the permissions without interfering with the operations of the web server?
Thanks so much for your help in advance.
