Hi, I just start a new server and had installed LAMP and Proftpd on UBUNTU, I do some test and work great but now I can’t view any page on my server; it always give me the 404 Not Found error even when the files exist on the server.

What I’ve to do?

Awesome, glad you got it working @csmatar! :]

Thanks you for help me @Kamal Nasser, I solve the problem with: sudo chown -R username:username /var/www. <br> <br>DO is great!

Ok, the problem is that Proftpd upload the files to Home>USER and dont let me upload to var>www because the USER I using have no Permission. But how can I add the USER to the same group that owns /var/www and then setting /var/www to group writeable?
