Ubuntu ftp install

Ubuntu ftp install step by step using pure-ftpd. You must have Internet connection to install ftp using apt-get command. The installation only takes 2 steps:

  1. Issue apt-get install pure-ftpd command. Please take note that you need root privilege to install ftp server.

  2. Answer Y (for Yes) when you are prompted to continue.

Below is an example of Ubuntu ftp install:

luzar@ubuntu:/etc$ sudo apt-get install pure-ftpd

Installing the Ubuntu ftp server is an easy step. However, you need to configure the pure-ftpd daemon and edit settings in the configuration files for security. We'll continue to configure ftp later.
