Set up a Ubuntu server as a FTP server


How can I set up a ubuntu server as a FTP server?


Here’s what I’d do …

Install webmin, then log on to webmin, and use it to install/configure ProFTPD Server or WU-FTP Server

There are plenty of tutorials for installing webmin … such as:


or many others online :wink:

I am with Mark, Webmin is a must. :wink:
