I've got a simple Ubuntu (14.04) server. I now want to give ftp or ssh access to a specific folder to a friend of mine. Either ftp or ssh would be fine, I'm just after a quick setup. The problem is now that finding a quick and dirty solution doesn't seem to be as easy as I hoped for.
I first checked out ssh for which I found this blog, which seems a bit too complicated for my basic linux knowledge. I can't find an easier/simpler solution for ssh though.
I then looked around for ftp solutions, for which vsftpd seems to be the way to go. Looking through the vsftpd config page I am totally lost though.
Does anybody have a quick and dirty way to give someone read and write access to a specific folder on a Linux server? No need for extremely tight security or best practices (many files are somewhat public anyway). Anything that works would be awesome!
