Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

thanks, that worked, i typed that, and the service started oddly enough. im a little new to linux and hence new to VSFTPD, once the service is started, how do i start to use my ftp server? I have tried to access it in /etc/xinetd.d, but there is no vsftpd file in this folder.
Maybe you have a link to a good website, about command line options for vsftpd, (like how to upload and view files on the server) THanks so much!!!
Originally posted by blizunt7 I am trying to run my ftp server, from /etc/init.d i then type:
and get the error message
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open config file:start
thanks so much, josh
When you type "vsftpd start" from anywhere (as root) you are trying to run the "/usr/sbin/vsftpd" and telling it to use a config file called "start" which it cannot find. When you are in /etc/init.d/ you need to type "./vsftpd start" or "/etc/init.d/vsftpd start" from anywhere else and should then work.
