    Question Questions about vsftpd

    Hi,

    Because I¡m working witk wordpress locally I needed to install vsftpd on my computer. I Have some questions about this program:

    Which is my ftp server url ?
    How can I create, update or delete users from the ftp server ?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback,

    regards,

    IIRC the YAST FTP server applet supports vsftp

    Install it with the following command
    Code:
    zypper in yast2-ftp-server
    Then, you will find it in YAST which can greatly ease FTP management for common configuration and use.

    By default, the users are the same as those of the system.

    The FTP server URL could be anything that is suitable. Localhost is appropriate only if accessing the FTP server locally only.
    The Users might seem to be the same as local users, but it's not really... The FTP user configuration is entirely within the FTP app and is not part of the system users. This is partly why FTP permissions and security is its own layer separate from normal file system settings.

    The above should apply to all FTP servers.

    Yes, but that is what he said: «Because I¡m working witk wordpress
    locally I needed to install vsftpd on my computer.» He said "locally".

    By default, vsftpd uses the system users and authentication methods, not
    users defined and maintained for ftp separately. This can be changed, I
    understand.
