ftp access with Filezilla/WinSCP?
« on: May 14, 2018, 06:07:06 pm »
Good day,
I need to log in via ftp to my server (AWS), when I created my instance in amazon they gave me a .pem file
Which if I use with the user by default I get to enter and modify only what is in "/home/user"
If I check the permits I get the following

Code: [Select]
user@user:~$ pwd
/home/user
user@user:~$ ls -la
total 44
drwxr-xr-x  5 user user 4096 May 15 00:00 .
drwxr-xr-x  4 root   root   4096 Mar 17 03:52 ..
-rw-------  1 user user 2142 May 14 23:40 .bash_history
-rw-r--r--  1 user user  220 Aug 31  2015 .bash_logout
-rw-r--r--  1 user user 3771 Aug 31  2015 .bashrc
drwx------  2 user user 4096 Mar 17 03:46 .cache
drwxrwxr-x 24 user user 4096 Mar 17 03:47 ehcp
-rw-r--r--  1 user user  655 May 16  2017 .profile
-rw-------  1 root   root   1024 Mar 17 03:52 .rnd
drwx------  2 user user 4096 Mar 17 03:42 .ssh
-rw-r--r--  1 user user    0 Mar 17 03:47 .sudo_as_admin_successful
-rw-rw-r--  1 user user  207 Mar 17 03:53 .wget-hsts

But I need to modify/upload in /var/www/vhosts/user

Some idea?

thank you!

EHCP installs and configures an FTP server for you.  This is separate from FTP over SSH.  As long as you use FTP account credentials that have been created in the EHCP panel, you should be able to connect using a normal FTP client. 

Are you using the latest version of EHCP Force Edition?  I believe you're confusing normal SSH access over setting up and using FTP accounts in EHCP.
