CentOS FTP server configuration

Post by sakibnaz » 2010/10/13 20:20:29

Hello.
I am new on Linux. I need to configure a FTP server on CentOS_5.3. I have only the SSH connection.
Can anybody give me a example how to install and configure FTP server on CentOS.

Here the FTP configuration will be as follows:

Say, User:root, Pass:root123 > is the root access

and User:guest, Pass:guest123 > can access only /usr/local/guest

Thanks in advance. Expecting your reply soon.

Regards.
Sakibnaz.

Welcome to CentOS.
New users need to read:
http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=47

Then you can read the deployment guide chapter 23.

You should immediately update to the current release 5.5. 5.3 is seriously obsolete and has numerous known bugs and security issues that have been fixed in subsequent updates. Obsolete releases are not supported, nor is it advisable to be running them. See the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.5]CentOS 5.5 Release Notes[/url] Section 4 for details on the recommended update procedure.

You might find this guide clearer than the official documentation.

The first link has been retired.
The new one is viewforum.php?f=12

The second one still works.
