Step One—install vsftpd
yum install vsftpd
We also need to install the FTP client, so that we can connect to an FTP server using yum as shown below:
yum install ftp
Once VSFTP is installed, you can adjust the configuration.
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
change the Anonymous_enable to No (Important):
Finish up by restarting vsftpd:
sudo service vsftpd restart
In order to ensure that vsftpd runs at boot, run chkconfig:
chkconfig vsftpd on
Step Three—Access the FTP server
Once you have installed the FTP server and configured it to your liking, you can now start using it.
