    Hi,
    I have never been able to login as root via FTP. Can someone tell me how to set this up?

    Thanks!

    First off this is a bad idea ftping as root is insecure, there are better more secure ways of shifting files as root.

    To enable root ftp ensure that the directive &RootLogin on& is included in your configuration.

    Note the capitalization. &RootLogin& and &Rootlogin& are NOT the same variables, and therefore &Rootlogin on& is NOT the same directive as &RootLogin on&.

    Hope this helps! :)
