I'm trying to setup an FTP server so that any machine on the network can upload files to my /var/www/ on my Ubuntu 13.04 LAMP server -- with or without authentication.
I've spent most of the day trying to achieve this, to no resolve. I am ready for a fresh approach...
I've tried using vsftpd and proftpd + gadmin-proftpd -- details, below..
But the issue seems to be that I cannot find a way to get write privileges on /var/www/ via a remote computer. I can ssh in, but when accessing files via nautilus, sftp://[server.ip] - I cannot copy --
The following may be irrelevant: vsftpd.conf has all the things it should - anon_enable and the like, but I can not write files to the server from the client.
proftpd does similar, although I set up an ftpuser + password which it does not accept. In spite of passing the connection test, the client machine still cannot write to the server's /var/www/
SO - since all I am looking to do is use this as a LAN-Only FTP -- perhaps there is another solution that I have not come across, yet.
I've tried some odd dozen tutorials on both vsftpd and proftpd to no avail--
Any advice on this matter would be highly appreciated.
