How to change the ftp path

Postby pminetti » 21. November 2005 23:07

Hi,
I need to change the path for the ftp(/opt/lampp/htdocs) to a path only use by ftp (ex: /opt/lampp/ftp)

so in proftpd.conf y change

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /opt/lampp/htdocs/*>
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

# only for the web servers content
DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/htdocs

to

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /opt/lampp/ftp/*>
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

# only for the web servers content
DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/ftp

but now when I tried to connect to the ftp I can't

how can I solve this problem

thaks very much

i am just guessing that it might be a file/folder permission problem..ie the folder /opt/lampp/ftp that you created is not readable by all..

anyway, here is a very good guide i found to getting your ftp server up and running..

you can skip the initial part about setting up proftpd as xampp has already done it :)

hope this helps..[/b]
