I've just setup a fresh LAMP install along with vsftpd and openSSH on Xubuntu. Apache is setup to serve pages from home/*/public_html and vsftpd is chrooted to the users home dir.
So far so good.
However,the ftp sends the user log in in plain text, which seems to be identical to the telnet log-in and password that enables root privileges.
I guess can create a user with fewer privileges but that I (as admin) have to use two accounts. So how do I set it up that local users can log in with a different password that doesn't give privileges?
Or am I taking the wrong approach here?
