ProFTPD is a popular ftp server. Because it was written as a powerful and configurable program, it is not necessarily the lightest ftp server available for virtual servers.
Step One—Install ProFTP
You can quickly install ProFTP on your VPS in the command line:
sudo apt-get install proftpd
While the file is installing, you will be given the choice to run your VPS as an inetd or standalone server. Choose the standalone option.
Once the file finishes downloading, the ProFTPD server will be on your VPS. However, we still have to make a few changes to the configuration.
Step Two—Configure ProFTP
Once ProFTPD is installed, you can make the needed adjustments in the configuration. Unlike some other FTP configurations, ProFTPD disables anonymous login from the outset and we only need to make a couple of alterations in the config file.
Open up the file:
sudo nano /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
Go ahead and make a few changes:
Change the Server Name to your host name, ServerName “example.com”
Uncomment the line that says Default Root. Doing so will limit users to their home directory.
# Use this to jail all users in their homes DefaultRoot ~
Once you have finished those adjustments, you can save and exit.
Restart after you have made all of your changes:
sudo service proftpd restart
Step Three—Access the FTP server
Once you have installed the FTP server and configured it to your liking, you can now access it.
You can reach an FTP server in the browser by typing the domain name into the address bar and logging in with the appropriate ID. Keep in mind, you will only be able to access the user’s home directory when connecting to the virtual server.
Alternatively, you can reach the FTP server through the command line by typing:
