    ftp server

    i am trying to access my ftp through the web browser

    I installed vsftpd
    i changed /etc/vsftpd.conf:
    anonymous_enable=NO
    write_enable=YES

    i am able to connect via filezilla, but when i go via website it hangs, and eventually does nothing

    What am i doing wrong?

    Re: ftp server

    Are you specifying a username in your browser, such as ftp://tralce@yourftpsite.com? Since you have anonymous login disabled, poorly written FTP implementation in a browser can cause it to hang under these circumstances.

    I was unaware of using a username like that.
    I tried that solution but was unable I had the same happen.

    Re: ftp server

    What browser are you using? What version? From what operating system are you trying to connect?

    Re: ftp server

    Some borwsers/FTP servers will choke if you don't specify both the username and password in the URL. For example

    ftp://myuser:mypassword@the-server.com
