How to make a FTP server with a low-end computer

This is how Ritik installed ftp server. it works great. Now i can transfer files from any laptop/desktop to ftp server and vice versa.

1.Install Lubuntu Desktop

2.Follow the instructions at
Disregard the requirement for a RPi. Lubuntu is similar enough.

3.Install Filezilla client. The host is the IP address for the server.

4.On the server, open the terminal and type 'chmod a-w /home/user' . Replace user with the username.

5. If you get an error saying "500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot locate user specified in 'chown_username':whoever", replace whoever with the username. Any other errors must be Googled.
