I have setup a vsftpd connection (and SSL cert) to allow for SFTP uploads to copy a website. However root access to the directory is not allowed.
I want to create a user to finally copy over a website to my directory.
What do I Need to do to create a User that can get SFTP access, with enough access to create the /www/ folder.
Im confused about create the new user, its permissions and directory. (basically I just need this user to upload a full wordpress site and set it up), then i can delete the user.
Obviously i dont want to give the Root user access, but how can i proceed securely.
