I just installed Joomla and one of the things that came up during the install was to set the ftp username and password to allow Joomla to transfer files to and from the filesystem.

I left it blank as I didn't know what to fill in or how to set up a ftp user in Linux. As expected I am unable to upload any extensions to Joomla. It throws up a "Failed to move file" error.

How do I set up a ftp user in openSUSE and what permissions should I allow it to have in order for Joomla to work? Is it as simple as going to YAST>User and Group Management and just creating an user and assigning it to the ftp group?
