vsftpd configuration help.


I installed vsftpd and it said everything was fine. But I can't find the vsftpd.conf file so I can change the configuration settings for it. I did an slocate vsftpd.conf and it found nothing.

Anyone know where it is located? Also how do I make sure the service is started?



Thanks.

The default location is:
/etc/vsftpd.conf

If the service is being run in standalone mode you can check if it is started with:
ps -ef | grep vsftpd

If it is being started with xinetd then check your config.

It may also help if you let us know what distro you are using and how you installed vsftpd.

I'm running redhat 9.0.

when I type that command here is what I get.

root 1976 1934 0 21:15 pts/0 00:00:00 grep vsftpd


I used "rpm -ivh vsftpd-whatever.i386.rpm" to install it.

The config file should be in /etc/vsftpd/

I recommend using this for /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
Code:
anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
idle_session_timeout=600
chroot_local_user=yes
pam_service_name=vsftpd
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES
Then start the service with:
service vsftpd start
