First off, I am a newbie at linux. I have been a network admin at our local school for years (Windows Server environment with a few linux thin clients).
I have tried numerous distros and installed LAMP successfully. I have changed the web directory to /usr/websites/ and have been successful with connecting to a php page with localhost as well as connecting through my local network using the IP of the virtual machine... all is well with my apache/LAMP setup.
However, I am really having a difficult time setting up my ftp server.. vsftpd
I am wanting to configure it so that I can ftp in with dreamweaver and automatically create the file/folder structure by just clicking the upload button. Keep in mind that my root for apache is now /usr/websites/
I want to configure it to use "russ" as the username... "russ" is already the admin on the server..
BTW - I currently have ubuntu installed, but I can easily go to something else
