Adding user in vsftp server

My last article was about the installation of vsftp server in CentOS, and here is the detail on how you can make ftp users in it.

You can create users in linux using useradd command, however this user is not allowed to use ftp unless you configure it in vsftp configuration.

Step: 1

Edit vsftpd.conf, here is one my my servers

Step: 2

Create vsftpd.chroot_list in /etc

and add the user in it which you want to allow ftp

Step: 3

Restart vsftp

Now your user “testuser” is able to access his file using ftp.
