Just installed vsftpd. What is the best way to give a user access to /var/www?
Many nginx tutorials say to make ownership of /var/www belong to www-data:www-data but tutorials on vsftpd say to make ownership that of the user you’re using to login via FTP.
So which is the best way to give an FTP user to read/write in /var/www?
