need newby guide for ftp server
I have been looking at proftpd vsftpd and truthfully, I cant figure out where the files go that a client could download.
is there any easy guide out there to tell me step by step?
I simply need an anonymous ftp server setup on the local network.
Where I can put 2 files. And I need to know the website access url that would point to these 2 files in that folder.
It seems like all the documentation assumes you already know a lot of stuff and deals mainly with specialty configuration parameters.
I got further with this until I got a cryptic warning
vsftpd: refusing to run with writable anonymous root
'What this cryptic message means is that your ftp root directory is writable. Since it's anonymous, vsftpd doesn't like that. chmod -w the ftp root to get rid of this common error. '
OK, this statement assumes you know where to chmod -w something, but gives no idea where to do this
nothing in here about where files go?
Re: need newby guide for ftp server
Look in your vsftp.conf and look for a directive called "anon_root".
