CentOS 6 VSFTP FTP User Setup
Posted on 2011-09-07
I have CentOS 6 installed with vsftp, httpd, php, and phpmyadmin all loaded and running fine. By default, permissions to var/www/html is granted to root:root but I want the only ftp user on the server to have full access to the var/www/html and var/www/cgi-bin
I attempted to create a symlink from var/ftp/pub to var/www/html but that does not give the user permissions to upload, change, or create in this directory.
What is the safest most secure way of giving the ftp user access to our html and cgi-bin directory?
