Problem trying to load vsftpd


I run a yum groupinfo and this is what I get as i am trying to install vsftpd:

yum groupinfo vsftpd
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Group Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.rackspace.com
* extras: mirror.steadfast.net
* updates: mirror.dattobackup.com
Warning: Group vsftpd does not exist.

What should I run to install vsftpd? I have tried this: yum groupinstall vsftpd.
That also did not work? Help!

Have you tried
yum install vsftpd

As far as I know vsftpd is not part of a group which is why the above commands fail.

yum grouplist will show a complete list of group packages

Michaelk,

Here is what happend when I tried what you indicated:

yum install vsftpd ftp -y
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: holmes.umflint.edu
* extras: www.gtlib.gatech.edu
* updates: mirror.steadfast.net
Setting up Install Process
Package vsftpd-2.2.2-11.el6_4.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package ftp-0.17-54.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

If it is already installed what is my next step? As I cannot tell that it is running?

You can see running process via ps or top.

Next steps?
Configure it as desired (/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf)
Configure the firewall to allow ftp traffic
Configure vsftpd to start at boot if desired.

Check out the many online guides for specific configuration information.

MichaelK,

Thanks shipmate I will give those options a try. Is there a standard of what servers I need to stand up in a certain order? Or can the vsftpd server be first?

Thanks again,
cajunchief

I can not say since we do not know what you are trying to accomplish but yes you can install it first. You might want to limit access to your local network until you have it configured.
