vsftpd


Hi all

I've setup vsftpd for my FTP on my server, I edited the vsftpd.conf to allow me user to gain access to their home directory, It doesn't seem to let me in, I'm getting the error

Quote:
530 This FTP server is anonymous only.
this is set at yes

I've set it to NO and I get

Quote:
500 OOPS: vsftpd: both local and anonymous access disabled!
I don't quiet under whats going on, I followed this tutorial
https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/...tp-server.html

In the end I want to be able to upload files to the www directory for my web site.

any ideas please

Are you sure you did not skip this step in the tutorial:

By default, local system users are not allowed to login to FTP server. To change this setting, you should uncomment the following line:
#local_enable=YES

Ok thank you, I've been at this server for hours, it takes some one else to pick up what I missed, Thank you Sayan, I'll give it a shot

Cool that worked, is there a way not to show files in that DIR, I only want to be able to see public_html folder only.. would the public_html folder be created by root only ?
