    Hello guys,

    First of all I am VERY new to setting up servers and all, so please be patient with me :)

    Now, I have an unmanaged VPS with no control panels at all. OS is CentOS 5.2 and I use nginx as my webserver

    I wanted to know, what all steps to follow to install/configure SFTP access. Please explain step by step. What all stuff do I need for it?

    I use FireFTP as my ftp client, it has SFTP feature too.

    Thank you

    All you have to do is create a system user with the /bin/bash or /bin/sh shell using the useradd command (see
    man useradd
    ). Then set a password for that user:
    passwd [I]username[/I]
    Afterwards you should be able to log in using SFTP.
