I just followed the instruction of this link to install a vsftpd: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-vsftpd-on-ubuntu-12-04
I then: chown root:root /home/reddit because /reddit/ is the folder I want to have access to through ftp
When I connect through putty, it says Connected to 184.108.40.206. 220 (vsFTPd 2.3.5) Name (220.127.116.11:root):
But when I do it through filezilla I get that the password is incorrect. I’m using my root account.
PS: sorry for posting too many topics but I’m new to this and I’m trying to set up my project.
