You can quickly install vsftpd on your virtual private server in the command line:
sudo yum install vsftpd
We also need to install the FTP client, so that we can connect to an FTP server:
sudo yum install ftp
Once the files finish downloading, vsftpd will be on your VPS. Generally speaking, the virtual private server is already configured with a reasonable amount of security. However, it does provide access to anonymous users.
Open up the configuration file:
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
One primary change you need to make is to change the Anonymous_enable to No:
Prior to this change, vsftpd allowed anonymous, unidentified users to access the VPS’s files. This is useful if you are seeking to distribute information widely, but may be considered a serious security issue in most other cases. After that, uncomment the local_enable option, changing it to yes.
local_enable=YES pasv_enable=Yes pasv_max_port=10100 pasv_min_port=10090
allow users in this file
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd/user_list sudo chkconfig vsftpd on
