I have installed an Ubuntu server version 8.4 with a default user with rights to do "sudo". :-)
(This is of course not the 'root' user). Then I installed the VSFTP-server, and used the created user as a login-user to the ftp-server. So far, so good. But when I try to create a new directory on my ftp-site on the Ubuntu-server it fails.
When I connect to the server using PUTTy I have to do a 'sudo mkdir <directory name>' to accomplish this operation.
How can I solve this problem ? I am fairly new to Linux, but I have Windows-experience..: :-)
