K, everything is installed now, but something weird happens when I click on a button. If I go to the Others button and then go to the File Manager button, the browser just closes. Any idea why???

Well, another problem. . . I contacted the devs for Webmin and they say vsftpd will not work with the software despite the plug in that was mentioned. So, it looks like I'll have to do this the hard way. Dammit. Well, can someone please help me.

Again, the daemon is up and running, all I need is for someone to tell me how I can get the server up to access the directories I need to have up and running. Thanks.

It is vsftp and I have it up and running now, but I would like to use webmin to administer it. I would like help on using the webmin plug in for it. I can't seem to find it when in the webmin directories. Perhaps it's because I've been trying to figure it out for 24 hours straight.

You shouldnt need to administrate it from Webmin.. if its up and running you know need to create users/groups that have access to the folders/files u want. then simply add the users you want into the groups that have the correct access to them.

eg create a group call "friends" for example
now create a user "johny" now make sure that johny is a part of "friends" group.

now create a folder "/public"
now make sure that the group is owner etc and they have read/write/exec if u want them to have full right or whatever.. i thiink thats correct anyways
