How do you create a new FTP USer?

Postby Bobby Allen » 05. October 2005 15:53

Hi all, hope you can help..

I want to create a new FTP user that has access to /opt/lampp/htdocs/{somefolder}

How do a create a new user with full permissions on a folder in the htdocs?

Is there a command that I can type in the console?

Thanks in advance,

Bobby

Hi,

you will have to create a new User on your System.
And this Users Homedir should be /opt/lampp/htdocs/<somedir>

Then goto /opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf and change the line:

DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/htdocs
to
DefaultRoot ~

save and restart proftpd.

So long

Ok, So basically I have to create a system user, Thats ok :)

Can you add Users directly into the proftpd file, like you can with SlimFTPd?

Thanks for your help Kris, I will give it a go :)

Hi,

AFAIK you can also put them in the proftpd.conf
See the example of the user "nobody" in proftpd.conf
But I'm not sure, if this user has to exist.
