Temporary FTP access to directory
I’m trying to give a developer temporary ftp access to a directory.
I normally ftp via ssh, though trying to keep things simple I thought only giving them access to the theme directory regular FTP would be sufficient.
I set up the user -> adduser demo
Changed their home directory to the theme directory -> usermod -m -d /path/to/theme/directory/ demo
Setup FTP following this tutorial -> https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-vsftpd-on-ubuntu-12-04
When I try and connect via Filezilla I get the message -> Error: Connection timed out
Error: Could not connect to server
Just wondering if I’m missing anything.
Thanks in advance.
