VSFTPD - how do you configure the FTP root directory?
Posted on 2008-10-01
I've recently obtained my own dedicated Linux server, and have full root access.
I've verified that I have the VSFTPD sever installed, and that the service is running.
I am able to log in via FTP (using the same username & password that I've been using to connect via SFTP) -- but after connecting, .. I never see a directory or file listing. It just hands at the "LIST" command and eventually throws an error message (ie: )
I'm assuming that I need to modify the vsftpd.conf file and specify the FTP root directory somehow. I've had a look at the file, but can't seem to figure out where this entry needs to be updated or added. Please advise.
By the way, I need to get FTP working because I need to configure Joomla with it (since Joomla currently doesn't have built-in SFTP support -- it only has FTP support)
Thanks in advance,
