If you need to configure Vsftpd you have to edit its config file, its usually at:


To start / stop / restart Vsftp or any other service the comand line is:

/sbin/service (name of the service) start | stop | restart

eg. /sbin/service vsftpd start

In some distributions, the start/stop command is

/etc/init.d/service start | stop | restart
