Installing an FTP Server on Centos or Fedora

To create an FTP Server on Centos or Fedora (in this instance vsftpd) you need to be logged in to terminal as root and then:

  • To install vsftpd type: yum install vsftpd
  • To turn on the vsftpd ftp service type: chkconfig vsftpd on
  • To start/stop/restart the vsftpd service type: service vsftpd start/stop/restart
  • To change your vsftpd configuration file type: nano /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
  • To see the vsftpd manual type: man vsftpd.conf

If you do not wish for clients to view the contents of the /home/ directory it may be wise to add the following to the bottom of your vsftpd.conf: chroot_local_user=YES and restart the vsftpd process.

Please remember that you may need to open port 20 & 21 in your firewall for your FTP server to be externally reachable.

  • The racksrv.com VPS service is by far the best I have used and trust me I have used ALOT! if anything they are undersold the performance is better than even the big players when running stress tests, my openVZ server beat both my VPS servers with linode and softlayer!

  • When I was first looking to purchase a Dedicated Server I had looked around at a few providers, but choose RackSRV for their friendliness and helpful support. This was the first time I had purchased a Dedicated Server, so I was very new to how Payments and Setup would work. So I simply asked a few questions, and go...

  • I cant recommend RackSRV highly enough! Overall, support is definitely one of RackSRV's many strong points, if you were to single out any one in particular, and this really defined the service for us. Looking forward to renewing our service in future.
