How To Set Up vsftpd on CentOS 6
Step One—Install vsftpd
You can quickly install vsftpd on your virtual private server using yum as shown below:
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.
Open up the configuration file:
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
change the Anonymous_enable to No (Important):
Also make the below changes, when this line is set to Yes, all the local users will be jailed within their chroot and will be denied access to any other part of the server.
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.
