Linux Create An FTP User Account

Now your FTP server is up and running. It is time to add additional users to FTP server so that they can login into account to upload / download files. To add a user called tom and set the password, enter:
# adduser -c 'FTP USER Tom' -m tom
# passwd tom

Now tom can login using our ftp server. Make sure the following is set in vsftpd.conf

local_enable=YES

Restart the vftpd:
# service vsftpd restart

However, I recommend setting virtual FTP user account to increase server security.
