Smile Using FTP on Debian


Hi I am the local noob

I made a debian webserver today, and everything is great. I want to make it also a ftp server and have it when you logon as user escso you go to that home folder. I have no idea how to do this. Like I said I am a noob.

does Apache support ftp? Do i need to flip a switch?

I know my way arround bash and gui. This machine has no gui (for speed reasons)

Any help would be appreicated.

Thanks

You need to install an ftp server (there's several) then edit the configuration file to make everyone start in the home folder.

Here's a helpful guide I found when I first started Debian. I don't use the same ftp server they use, but it's a very thorough site and you'll learn a lot.

or you maybe better off installing ssh then you can make use of sftp, which is more secure. sftp comes bundled in openssh which can easily be downloaded from the openssh website, www.openssh.com. download the latest version, install and then you should be able to conenct with a sftp client
