I have the following config on my Ubuntu 12 server:
1 - vsftpd installed and configured with the config file settings:
listen=YES anonymous_enable=NO local_enable=YES write_enable=YES dir_message_enable=YES use_locatime=YES xferlog_enable=YES connect_from_port_20=YES chroot_local_user=YES #chroot_list_enable=YES (commented out) chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list secure_choot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd/empty pam_service_name=vsftpd rsa_cert_file=/ect/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd/user_conf
2 - I have an ftp user setup in which their home directory is
3 - When I connect to the server with filezilla with the new ftp username, filezilla automatically shows the webroot, as desired.
The problem is the permissions of the files; every file the ftpuser uploads to the var/www directory are set so both the owner and the group of the file is of the ftp user.
Also the permissions are
Which of course means every file a try to access through a std browser receives the forbidden warning.
The var/www's owner is 'www-data' and the group is 'webroot'.
webroot is a group i created seperately and added the ftp user to, along with a few others.
How can I best correct this so that a std browser doesn't receive the forbidden warning when trying to view a file uploaded by the ftp user?
