I have vsftpd installed on ubuntu. I added a new created a new user and set the users home path to
/var/www so I can ftp with that user directly to that location. And that all works, I can now FTP with the user I created directly to that location. However I whenever I ftp, I have no permissions to change anything. How can I change that?
OK, I set my user as the owner and confirmed the ownership. I even chmod the directory and its contents to 777 and verified that. I can make any change I want locally however I cannot make any changes via ftp. when using filezilla i get
Critical file transfer error I also get an error when trying to modify a file with dreamweaver via ftp.
I am new to linux so I don't have any idea what is going on.
