So i'm wondering, i've got a Ubuntu 8 server set up. LAMP, and it works fine so far.
Now i'm at the point of putting a bunch of files to work on /var/www in order to run a small website.
Turns out my user (arnan) has read only rights on /var/www
root is forbidden in sftp.
I prefer to use sftp. And am not aware of any installed FTP servers.
Now i can just go into the openssh config and allow root access. Or i can do some magic with userrights and change ownership on /var/www to my user.
I'm wondering what would be the best approach.
I use a mac and use Cyberduck as my FTP client. This allows me to use FTP SFTP and SSH/SSL.
I prefer SFTP.
