Check if vsftpd is installed
chkconfig --list | grep vsftpd

You have to install vsftpd if not already installed
yum install vsftpd

Turn it on
chkconfig vsftp on

Start the service
service vsftpd start

For configuration details, look at this guide

###edit the FTP server config file 
#nano /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf 
and disable anonymous login, enable local users to login.
