I am experimenting with setting up an FTP account so that hosting clients can log in to upload files to their site. I have installed VSFTP, created a group and user and assigned the user’s home directory to /home/name. When I try to FTP into the account using the username and password I get the following error:
Error -203: miscellaneous error occurred while trying to login to the host
Is this a problem with the VSFTP setup or with the why the user is set up in Apache? I changed the users home directory that I want them to have FTP access to using this command:
usermod -d /home/name username
