Install VSFTPD on Centos 7
Very Secure FTP Daemon (VSFTPD) is an FTP daemon that establishes a secure connection to FTP Server by creating a secure tunnel that encrypts data flow to and from FTP Server.It has been available for many years now. This protects files being uploaded or downloaded from hackers thus enforcing end-to-end encryption between the user and FTP Server.
First update the system packages using following command.
yum update -y
Now install the
VSFTPD package on the server using the command.
yum install vsftpd -y
Change some options that are critical to set in the configuration file.
