Query about FTP Wiki HowTo

Post by vikram8jp » 2008/10/16 00:09:07

Hello all,

I was studying the Wiki HowTos for FTP : Chroot Vsftpd with non-system users. What does it mean by non-system users?

I want to use this material to setup an FTP on my server with other machines using and FTP client to download or upload data.

Where should I run this script? On root? or from somewhere else?
Also there is a line

[quote]MY_FTP_User would be your own personal non root user account's home directory[/quote]

Can anybody give an example for this, where is the home directory?

Thanks for any help

If you don't know where or what your home directory is, you need to get a beginners
Linux book.
I suggest you read http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=47
and get one of the recommended books.
If yo want to know your home directory, enter the following two commands.
