FTP Username

Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

FTP Username

Postby Dr Small » 08. December 2006 19:34

Hello. I am currently new to XAMPP for Linux, and just installed it prior to this day, and ran the cmd:

Code: Select all
/opt/lampp/lampp security


But I never saw anything in there that would allow me to change the default username, for the ftp, from nobody to the username that I desire.

Could someone give me a nudge in the right direction, as to where I can change the ftp username?

Thanks.

Xampp fetches the usernames and passwords from /etc/passwd, so all users on your system have an FTP account.

I'm not sure how write access to the htdocs directory is set (I find the configuration of ProFTPD quite complicated).
