    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    i can set permissions for users to upload to a particular directory but any subfolders in that directory do not inherit the permissions of the parent folder. Do i have to add something to my conf file for this to happen?

    Thanks

    You can leave it like that, that doesn't really matter for a standard use.

    This is explained everywhere in this thread.

    The ftp server will login in the user home directory so if you didn't set the FTP-shared directory as home directory for your ftp user then it is normal.

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    I'm having some problems with this after upgrading to Gutsy - when starting the server without a wired network connection:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/proftpd start
     * Starting ftp server proftpd                                                   
     - IPv4 getaddrinfo 'manetheren' error: No address associated with hostname
     - warning: unable to determine IP address of 'manetheren'
     - error: no valid servers configured
     - Fatal: error processing configuration file '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
    With no or wireless connection, the server refuses to start. There is nothing in the conf that suggests anything about "manetheren" - which is indeed my hostname.

    Completely removing and re-installing proftpd doesn't seem to do the trick...
    any ideas?

    Your problem is not related to proftpd but to your network configuration, post here your /etc/hosts file, your problem is here.

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 manetheren.lan
    127.0.1.1 manetheren.lan manetheren.lan
    
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
    remove ".lan" from the first entry?

    I guess your host name may be different when you use your wireless connection, check this and if it is really the case just add your wireless specific host name to the file.
