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):

anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES

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.

chroot_local_user=YES

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.
