Can anyone offer any suggestions. I have an Amazon EC2 instance running, based on the 64-bit Amazon Linux AMI. I've installed all updates using yum, and have installed PHP5.3 and the vsFTPd service.
I've created a new user group, and a new user, given a password to the user and made the html folder for web php files owned by the new group. Everything in that respect works fine. Create a php file in vi and the page is visible in a browser.
Now i've started the vsFTPd server, all is ok. I can connect to it almost instantaneously from a terminal screen, but doing ls -l takes ages to return.
Connect from FTP software and it can take upwards of 60 seconds to connect, the same when changing folders. Then when you try and upload a file, sometimes it will go, and it always seems to create folders ok, but then times-out or drops the connection and won't restart. Cancel the transfer, and set it up again, and it reconnects fine.
Can anyone offer any ideas as to whats wrong? I've tried both passive mode on and off on the FTP client, but it doesn't make any difference. I don't see that much can be wrong as its connecting and does transfer a couple of small text files before timing out.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be very helpful if you guys can! I'm out of ideas!
