Question

Cannot connect to ftp through FileZilla

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 37.139.5.242. 220 (vsFTPd 2.3.5) Name (37.139.5.242: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.

Even I cant connect through SFTP also

doesnt work for me

judts cant connect with filezilla.

It won’t work. <br> <br>I installed vsftpd correctly. I added a new user, I changed /usr/sbin/visudo and I added the new user with root privileges inside. I gave the new user access to its own folder under /home/username <br> <br>even though I wanna access /home/reddit/ and not /home/username/ <br> <br>But it would still not connect in FileZilla
