hi, love the site, but let me get down to buisness.

basicly, i have a linux box on my network (that has no access to the net), and i use it as a test box for php scripts, and the like, ok, so, what i want to do, is set up ftp so i can simply login and be able to modify everything under /var/www/html/, i've tried by using lots of how-to's and guides and such, but havent been able for it to work properly sad.gif


any suggestions would help. Thanks.

you can NOT login as root to an ftp server...
you have to be a regular user
why do you want to login as root to an ftp server for?
