I installed vsftpd FTP server on a Suse 9.1. I configured the server according to the following document:
I experience problems restarting the vsftpd service. I tried several things:
thorgal:/ # /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd restart
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 6: service: command not found
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 8: socket_type: command not found
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 9: protocol: command not found
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 10: wait: `=': not a pid or valid job spec
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 10: wait: `no': not a pid or valid job spec
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 11: user: command not found
/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd: line 12: server: command not found
disable: Operation failed: client-error-not-found
thorgal:/ # /usr/sbin/vsftpd restart
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open config file:restart
Are there any more options that I didn't try. Does anyone know why it is complaining?
When I FTP, I get
thorgal:/ # ftp 10.0.0.13
Connected to thorgal.wauters-mannaert.be.
500 OOPS: missing value in config file for: Allow anonymous FTP?
So I wanted to change my vsftp.conf file to allow anonymous FTP, and then wanted to restart the FTP server to re-read the conf file, but then I got the above mentioned probs.
Any hints is more than welcome.
