Hi Brian,

What was the error message that you got when you tried to start vsftp service?

Paste the output of the following commands:

1. Run this command:
service vsftpd start
Once you get the error message. Paste it in this thread.

2. Paste the output of:
tail /var/log/messsages
3. Paste the output of:
cat /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
