Installing vsftpd on your web server
Visit the vsftpd site for more information.
Once your web server is built, log on as the user that you created and perform the following:
$ sudo apt-get install vsftpd
$ sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf
Uncomment the following lines...
You might also want to change the following line...
FTP user account
It's now good practice to create an FTP user account.
$ sudo useradd ftpuser
$ sudo passwd ftpuser
Enter and confirm a password
$ sudo mkdir /home/ftpuser
$ sudo chown ftpuser:ftpuser /home/ftpuser
Before you can use FTP (file transfer protocol) on this server, you will need to ensure that port 21 is open.
Additionally if you want to use SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) you will also need port 22 open
With vsftpd installed, you'll now be able to start using FileZilla to upload and download files to your web server.
