Add a FTP-user

Postby Kottizen » 09. September 2009 19:08

I'm running Ubuntu server 8.04 and need to know how to add so a user get 100% access of one folder (and folders under it). I've recently runned "sudo adduser <username>" to add the user to the system, but how do I add him to the FTPd?

This is what i use to grant access to a specific folder,
create a user in the user manager of your unix OS,
At the end of the proftpd.conf add this directives.
Code: Select all
<Global>
RequireValidShell off
AllowOverwrite on
AllowRetrieveRestart on
AllowStoreRestart on
Umask            022
DefaultTransferMode ascii
AllowOverwrite on
MaxClients 3
DeleteAbortedStores on
DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/htdocs/"thefolder-you want to have" "theusername-created"
</Global>

access the folder content with filezilla or a program of your linking... use user name and password that you created for that determined user that will have access..
hope this help...
