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

#yum install vsftpd
#chkconfig --add vsftpd
#chkconfig vsftpd on
###edit the FTP server config file 
#nano /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf 
and disable anonymous login, enable local users to login.
anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES

Open in new window

If firewall is enabled open port 21 for FTP
