FTP Question

Posted April 25, 2014 1.5k views
Well, by now I've spent 2 hours trying to make some ftp server to work. I have to clients over this standart "/var/www/clientname/public html" One of this clients needs ftp workind because he have Wordpress... so plugin and wp updates requires FTP. So, How can I set an FTP user (clientnameftpuser) to just have access on "/var/www/clientname/"? I do need to create Ubuntu user? Or FTPSERVERNAME has a "User sub-system"?
