installing VSFTPD by copying files over


I am trying to install VSFTPD 3.x on my Linux system, and I am having trouble. I heard that I can copy config and binary files onto the Linux system to install it. How do I do this?

You are trying to install it on which linux distribution? Copying over binary files and configuration files will not works because there are libraries as well which are required and this is something which is not the correct approach to install something.

As above, don't do that; use the repos that come with the system you've got.

Hm, I followed this, and it seems to work now: https://www.digitalocean.com/communi...n-ubuntu-12-04. Not sure why. After creating the new directory, and following those instructions, it works now. Maybe the pi user was not of root before? I thought it was root by default though.
