Stupid and lazy questions...


Okay....I started off pretty well gettign into the Linux world but then got badly sidetracked with projects at work. I am just wonderign if there is someone friendly out there that can help me with the following, instead of giving me a reply to read?

All I want to knwo for the beginning is as follows:
FTP and Web server, which files are the main configuration files to work with and once these files are configured correctly the server will run these two services. I will be using Centos 3.3 with vsftpd and Apatche????

Many thanks to those who have the patience to help a lazy

vsftpd

Install rpm via
Code:
rpm -Uvh vsftpd-*.i386.rpm
Edit config file: /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

Make sure the following line is present:
Code:
listen=YES
Start the server:
Code:
/usr/sbin/vsftpd &
apache
Should already be installed on your system (it's Red Hat based).

Edit config file: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

It is well commented, so it should be no problem.

If anything goes wrong, check your firewall config (iptables).
