I'm going nuts trying to figure out how to enable access via ftp to my root level pages on my apache web server. They're in the default www directory and need to have it so my web designer can access them. I don't to allow ftp root access. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I'm just starting to learn linux and this hurdle is driving my nuts.

Any suggestions appreciated

what ftp server you using?

you need to add a regular user and then in their
directory that is created just create a symbolic
link to your www root directory like so:

if your root dir is /usr/local/www
then you would create a symbolic link like this:
ln -s /usr/local/www www

you can also configure your ftp server to make
your www root directory as the base directory for ftp

either way should work...

but i prefer to make a symbolic link personally
