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.

  • I got to know Jon through a friend of mine, and when my last host was yet again unhelpful I thought it was time to change. I have had various hosts for my clan in the 8+ years we have been playing, and to be honest I dread the change to a new host. But ever since that time 2 years ago now, I can honestly say that I hav...

  • One of the best companies that I've ever dealt with, and I've been through a few. When getting support, you often speak to the owner himself and any issues are resolved very quickly.
