Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have RH-5 installed in one of my lab boxes. I installed vsftpd on it and the /var/ftp directory is the ftp users directory. I have configured vsftpd.conf to have anonymous logins.
When i type ftp.<ip> in browser, i have a ftp page opened, which lists the directories in /var/ftp, I can download files from here. I tried to use CLI for upload and download of files as anonymous user and it works just fine. I wanted to ask if I can upload files from the web page. Because when i open the ftp page on browser it doesnt give me any upload option. The only way out is to use CLI.
Thanks chris, i just wanted to make sure if there was a server side setting for this, but it doesnt seem so.
No, it wouldn't make sense for there to be one. FTP is a generic protocol, the interaction between doing this on a psuedo web page and a more conventional looking client would be exactly the same to the server.
