To install ProFTPD on your Ubuntu 14.04 LTS server, just follow these steps:
- First, log in to your Ubuntu server as the root user using your favorite SSH client.
- Next, you’ll want to make sure your operating system is up-to-date. Use the following command to install all the latest packages:
sudo apt-get update
- Now that your system is up-to-date, you can install ProFTPD FTP services using the command:
apt-get -y install proftpd
- On the ProFTPD configuration screen, select the installation as Standalone then press TAB to move your cursor to the OK button and hit Enter to confirm.
- The installation and configuration process may take a few minutes.
- Once the installation has finished, you can configure the ProFTPD service by editing the proftpd.conf file located at /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf with your favorite editor.
- Within the configuration file, change the server name replacing it with the actual hostname of your server.
- In order to restrict users to their home directories, uncomment (remove the # sign from) the line that says Default root.
- After making your changes, save the configuration file with the command Ctrl + o, hit Enter, and then Ctrl + x.
- Lastly, you’ll need to restart the ProFTPD service with the following command:
service proftpd restart
