I just installed slackware linux, and also installed vsftpd and setup its config.
Problem 1: when i run vsftpd in a terminal it starts the server, but it just hangs in the terminal? kind of dosnt run as a standalone service, if i close the terminal window the ftp server stops. How can i add it to to start as a background service?
Problem 2: I can only login to the server as root, i have set up another user and added it to the root group (i know this isnt secure im only testing), and gave it a home directory e.t.c but i cannot login as that user. Can anyone tell me how to let users other than root login?
