Enabling an FTP server on Ubuntu 8.10

I am working on setting up a system so that I can create backup images of all of my
PCs to my Linux server. (I will eventually off-site all of my data on a USB drive
that I will store at the Bank in safety deposit box)


sudo apt-get install vsftpd

Backup the config file to your homedir

sudo cp /etc/vsftpd.conf ~

Edit the config file:

sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Change the config to:



restart the service:

sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
