need help properly setting up ftp

Greetings everyone. New to the opensource world but so far enjoying it! I used the unleased RH fedora 4 (Sams book) to get things started. I have got my server going and able to access everything wanted. But having issues setting up ftp. I want a friend of mine to be allowed to update certain files. Also having issues setting for a secure site. (https) Any help or resourced would be greatly appricated.

Hello nmmrg,

Sorry, I couldn't understand what you exactly mean by "I want a friend of mine to be allowed to update certain files". Do you want to allow your friend to update file of your webserver directory or you want to allow him your system access for a particular folder.

You can have a look at vsftpd (a FTP server). You need to install and configure it.

Regarding, your question about HTTPS, you need to modify your apache configuration to listen on SSL port. For apache configuration help, you can look at Apache Reference.

Thanks, Kirtimaan
