login as a non root user for proftpd

Post by amberteresa »

Anyone knows and give me the solution. Many thanks!!

per default it seems that only root can log into the ftp server

I have forgotten the way how to setup proftpd to login as a normal user

maybe to the users home folder

To create a user in proftpd

Better to create a non-root sudoer

Crazy easy to do...and highly recommended anyway

Why not use secure copy...SCP which uses SSH and port 22
However you have to use Openssh rather than Dropbear

Jep SFTP is another secure possibility, which is included with the OpenSSH server: https://www.linode.com/docs/tools-refer ... nd-ubuntu/
