In at the deepend with a dedicated remote server.
Hi all, my company wants me to transfer our website from our slow "Fasthosts" shared hosting to a much faster dedicated server. (running Fedora)
Today I received the IP address of the server and the root login for SSH and that was it.
It has Apache 2 preinstalled and a few other things, but there is no control panel so I am having to set it all up manually.
I have dabbled with linux on and off (mostly off) since the mid 80's. Plus I had experience of setting up our remote virtual server a while back, but that had a couple of control panels to help out.
My initial problem is how do I setup ProFTPD. It's installed and I can connect to it using FTP through a dos window on my PC, but it does not accept my password. I foolishly assumed it would accept the same login as I use for SSH.
At the moment I am having to use FTP in the SSH window on the remote server to retrieve files from our old server. It's not ideal :)
How do I make ProFTPD let me log in as root, or anything else.
