So I'm trying to setup vsFTPd on my Ubuntu server. I did
aptitude install vsftpd to install the program, but when I go to
/etc/ to look for the
vsftpd.conf file, it isn't there. Is there a way that I can get it?
I've experienced similar problems (form time to time). Mostly If I had a previous or a partial installation of a package, sometimes a new installation from apt-get or aptitude may miss some of the configuration files.
To get the original /etc/vsftpd.conf I would do the following (assuming that you already have the deb file in /var/cache/apt/archives/ - in my example I'll do with natty's version)
If you follow those steps you should end with your file at
Here is the vsftpd.conf that is created by default in Ubuntu 10.10
Not sure why you didn't get it, just copy and paste this into a file, save it to that path, and see where you get to.
It will most likely log to /var/log/daemon.log with startup information, you can check that after doing
This should get you started at least!
