Hi, Im trying to setup a home server for my mp3s and movies, I use to have one 250Gb hdd and that was it but now I add a 500Gb HDD that I would like to use it for the movies only, I mount the HDD in the ftp path /home/lust/ the name of the HDD is DVDR so the current path is /home/lust/DVDR, but everytime I try to access it via FTP it says:
[R] CWD DVDR
[R] 550 DVDR: No such file or directory
Im currently using Proftpd and Gadmin-Proftpd, I would like to know how to configure the HDD so Proftpd can give me access to it as a regular folder, I already make sure that the user has access to it.
If someone can help me or send me a link were I can read how to do this I would really appreciate it, I have been googling for something like Proftpd second HDD or second default root but couldnt find anything that solves my problem.

What distro are you running?
I don't know about FTP servers, other than to be sure the daemon is running. Running something like this should tell you:
service proftpd status
But why ftp? Why not nfs? You can export the whole disk with nfs to every machine on you home network by adding a line in /etc/exports something like this. Naturally, modify the IP address range you use (or host names):Code:
See exports(5), fstab(5), nfs(5) and mount(8).
But if exporting to Windows machines, you'll have to setup Samba, which is a little more involved.
