I'm looking to get FTP working on my Linux server. I've installed VSFTP. I have it running, but when I try to create a new user (htpasswd -c /etc/vsftp/passwd dvd) I g the error cannot create file. I tried under sudo too. One thing I can say that I did following this guide online it
ln -s /var/www www
chown -R <user> /var/www
chmod -R 755 /var/www
I tried to do some reading about this online and the closet I came asked me to install libpam-pwdfile. I found a username
assword with htpasswd -bn username pass, but I don't know what directory to put it in a file with. I think I'm just going down deeper the rabbit hole.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. My main goal through Putty is to create a web server I can test my web pages on.
