I'm stuck. I've been working all day on trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong and I've hit wall after wall.
What I'm trying to do: Setup FTP in such a way that certain users have access only to their directory, but higher level users have access to all directories.
What I've Googled so far: I started with this, but that didn't do what I needed it to. I then used this, but once I created one user, it wouldn't let me create another one. Finally, I decided to follow this, but it wouldn't let me even create one user.
I'm using Ubuntu 10. I can login to ftp as a root user and it takes me to the home directory. If I try to login using the user I created in the tutorial it says:
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Response: 220 (vsFTPd 2.2.2) Command: USER mathew Response: 331 Please specify the password. Command: PASS **** Response: 530 Login incorrect. Error: Critical error Error: Could not connect to server
EDIT: I'm still having trouble understanding CHROOT with FTP. Every tutorial I read looks completely different and has me do different things. Every tutorial I read on VSFTP has me doing different things as well. I thought using Linux would be easier to configure and set up, but so far I'm struggling with something that should be simple. It's easier to set up an entire LAMP stack than FTP. SIGH Sorry, for the rant.
