I've been able to install VSFTPD on Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 .. But now, I'm having an issue configuring it ... The server is running as a Web Server, so FTP is essential to update the website every now and then. These are the info that I need to know how to configure.
First, I will create a user called
ftpuser and will give it a password.
sudo adduser ftpuser sudo passwd ftpuser
From here, I'm stuck. No online tutorial was able to provide me with what I need to achieve.
I need the user
ftpuser to access
/etc/www/html folder to be able to upload new files. How can I achieve this?
- How can I secure the FTP from brute force attacks?
- Can I limit it to a specific IP/Subnet?
- Can I force the user to use a SSL Certificate to connect? If so, is it generatable from the server?
