I'm setting up a proFTPd server so I can upload files to my webserver, but I've never tried this before. I've installed proftpd, added a user with a home folder: /home/FTP-shared and added /bin/false shell to it as well.

But what do I do configuration-wise now in proftp to be able to login with this user, and up and download, delete and so on?

And my idea was to symlink to Apache www folder from the ftp user directory? Will that work?


For your first question, you can read it here.

For your second question, I'm currently using mount --bind.
