Default Wrong password?

Hey Falko, thanks for your help, however...

I did as you said, modified /etc/passwd and then ran chown admin /var/www

Now when I try to login to the FTP I get an error message telling me that is the wrong password for admin. I can login with the user admin anymore to the shell. And I tried setting the password again logged in as root, so I ran

passwd admin, and set a new password for admin, but it is still not working.

Please help.

Thanks.

UPDATE --
apparently I missed a '/' and that was causing the problem. It's working now and I can upload files via FTP to /www/var

Thanks a lot for your help.
