I've configured a Linux server for the first time, everything went relatively smoothly, everything I desired and required is now installed.

However, the last hurdle seems to be pure-ftp and permissions or something.

Basically the server is for a single web service.

Web server files are located in:


I would like to make this the directory used with pure-ftp, I've tried adding an account via pure-pw, I got password errors when trying to log in.

All /www/ is owned by group "ftp".

Is there something I'm missing?
