FTP Server

So, whats next.

Many features of Wordpress or Typo3 for example need access to the filesystem, via an FTP Server. So lets set up one . Regarding YAST there are two truely supported by yast, so the best way is to choose one of this. So we Install
zypper in yast2-ftp-server vsftpd

Now, we can find

  1. shell> yast

  2. Network Services

  3. FTP Server

and we can customize our FTP server

There is not much to configure to get it working. One of the important things you need to do is to open the firewall as shown in Apache webserver. You should click around and set:

  1. Start-Up -> When Booting

  2. Selected Service -> vsftpd

  3. Authentication-> Authenticated User Only

  4. Uploading -> Enable Upload
