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.
