I have just recently installed a web server on a machine that I of course want a fpt client on as well.
I have previously worked with vsftpd, and therefore I decided to use it this time as well.
The system is a Ubuntu Server 12.04.
When I installed vsftpd I noticed that it created a new user on the machine named "ftp".
/etc/passwd have this info:
I am wondering: What is the purpose of this user? What is for? Is it reserved for anything, or can I change its password and then use it to access the machine via ftp? Will I break stuff if I delete it or change password for it?
Thanks in advice! :)
