proftpd directory setup


Greets!

I have a PC and Fedora Core4 box set up for web development. The FC4 box has Apache and Mysql, etc etc. The various web site directories are on a second volume as /opt/webdev/ with all the various sites as VirtualHosts subdires to ~/webdev/.

I've gone over the proftpd docs and have come away more confused than when I started! Here is what I'd like to configure:

I am user avr on both machines. I log in as such on each. I would like to have user avr be able to also ftp to all the directories in /opt/webdev. avr is also owner of everything on this volume.

So - what would I need to add to the proftpd config file to allow user avr to keep his (my) existing home and ALSO ftp to /opt/webdev/xxx?

Thks!

If you are the only one who uses this ftp server, the fastest way is to comment the line:
Code:
#DefaultRoot ~
and create a symlink from your home directory to /opt/webdev
Else you have to mount /opt/webdev into your /home directory
Code:
mount --bind /opt/webdev /home/avr/webdev
More details here
