Creating ProFTPD Users
As you noticed, you are in the default home directory for the “proftpd” user, which isn’t useful for us, thats why we are going to create a new user with the /var/www/ folder as the home folder, so we can access it easily.
To create a FTP user say “myproftpduser” run.
$ sudo useradd myproftpduser
To create a password for it.
$ sudo passwd myproftpduser
To change it’s home folder to /var/www/ run.
$ sudo usermod -m -d /var/www/ myproftpduser
You can also define user home directory with useradd command, while creating a new users in Linux, for more information and usage of useradd command, read our article at.
