Making my own FTP server

Hi all,

Does anyone have a tutorial for setting up an FTP server? I would like to set one up, so that a group I belong to will be able to download the files, using my Plusnet web space.

I'm in the process of setting up the site with an active forum. So any help would be grately appreciated.

regards
Witty

I don't think you can set up an ftp server on your plusnet webspace. check out invision file manager. if you only need a group to download files, consider putting them in password-protected webspace

If you're happy to leave your PC on, you can install the FTP server on that.

If you want people to be able to download from your webspace, just create a directory and upload the files into it. Don't upload an index.html file though. Users using IE6 will then be able to 'explore' it...

and use .htaccess to protect them if necessary - see the tutorial on this for info.
