I connect to my ec2 instance using ssh so I don't have to login each time.
I just installed vsftpd on the ubuntu server, but when I connect it obviously asks for my username and password.
Since I connect using the ubuntu user that my AMI comes with, I don't even know the root password.
Is there a way I can login via ftp using SSH?
Or do I just create a user on the system for ftp purposes?
I've locked ftp to my IP address, and I will shutdown the ftp service once I'm done as I dont need it running 99.99999% of the time.
