In this opportunity we will teach you how to install an FTP server and create a user to be able to connect through port 21 with the FTP protocol.
First of all we log into our server through SSH, as we explained earlier in “Connect via the SSH protocol” and then we follow the steps written below.
Install FTP server vsftpd
We execute the following lines in console
1- We install vsftpd
|yum -y install vsftpd|
2- We begin the process
3- We check that everything is fine
|chkconfig vsftpd on|
The vsftpd configuration file is in “/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf“, you can view it using the command “view /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf” and / or edit using the command “vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf“.
Create FTP user
1- We create the user with the command
2- We create the group for the user
3- We assign the group to the user
|gpasswd -a <username> <groupname>|
4- We set a password for the user
Once these steps are completed, you can use your favorite FTP client, I recommend FileZilla, to transfer files.
