View Full Version : ProFTPd...

OK hold in mind first and foremost "n00b"

Ive done a minimal install of FC4, then installed MySQL, php5 etc. and httpd. Now I have ProFTPd...

on creating I only have root, the default proftpd has anon going to pub with an upload directory. What I would like is a login via fTP as root/rootpass going straight into /var/www with full read write priv. so can anybody post a conf or part of conf that will do this for me?

Not familar with proftpd conf, but I do know that using the root user is a terrible idea, as ftp does not encrypt passwords. Use a different user.

Its all local hardwired so not an issue. Only using it for web dev purposes.
