    You might want to include a note about firewalls. At the step labeled “Access FTP server”, where you optimistically assume “Success!”, I had another experience: “Could not connect to server.” Fortunately, I was able to recognize this as a need to add a rule to my ufw firewall:

    > sudo ufw allow ftp

    I’m now a happy FTPer!!

    Well, mostly…I was hoping you would also include how to set up SFTP.

      Thanks for the comment. I have now added the firewall note. And, of course I will post an article about SFTP server.

    I’m getting “Permission Denied” when trying to upload an image. I assume I need to chmod the users directory?

    ah ok, might want to add this step:

    # Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
