I can access the files on localhost in my FTP programme, but the account is locked, so while I can see them and view localhost in my browser, I can not edit, download or upload any files.
I setup ssh with the following positive results as explained on http://www.unixtutorial.org/2009/05/ubuntu-ssh-how-to-enable-secure-shell-in-ubuntu/ before that I couldn't even access localhost in my ftp programme.
ssh localhost The authenticity of host 'localhost (127.0.0.1)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is ce:12:ab:b4:e6:02:03:de:35:82:22:bd:63:f5:9a:d1. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added 'localhost' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. simon@localhost's password: Welcome to Ubuntu 13.04 (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-27-generic x86_64) * Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/ Last login: Sun Jul 14 11:57:29 2013
$ scp test.bin simon@server:/tmp
Which results in a timeout
logs me in with a password.
This learning curve is amazing, I love Ubuntu.
If anyone has any ideas, could you indulge me and point me in the right direction please?
