Posted September 1, 2014 14k views

Hi all ,

i was set up lemp and vsftpd. No problem about installing. my question is when i connect to server by ftp , i dont see the nginx’s web folder. i want to use vps as a web server. so i need to upload web files to that folder. i wrote “chown root:root /usr/share/nginx ”. but it doesn’t work. i searched other topics and tutorials but i couldnt find anything.
my web server works right now. thanks for your help.

Chiro -

The default web root folder usually is /usr/share/nginx/html or www

Also, you should probably move your web root to /var/www or /srv/www because it is not good practice to leave it in the /usr/share/nginx folder. You can do this by editing your site web config in /usr/share/nginx/sites-available

  • yeap , i move my web root to under my user files. now i have troubles about permissions. i can’t upload files via my local user. non root. i’m checking the vsftpd tutorials again. thank you romanparish.
