Hi, all of a sudden I'm having problems with ftp on my Linux Red Hat 7.2 server. I'm able to log in but not able to transfer any files. I checked some of the directories and the permissions seemed normal. It looks like the daemon is proftpd. Should I stop and start? if so how?

    Accepted Solution

    To restart the server:

    /etc/init.d/proftpd restart

    Check your log files to see if any error messages come back

    did u change your firewall? ftp uses 2 ports, port 20 for data and 21 for command

    I think something is corrupt. No setting have been changes that I know of. I'll reply back after a reboot.
