I changed the config file as you asked. The problem is I do not have a /etc/init./vsftpd file! A search for "vsftpd" got this
file:///usr/sbin/vsftpd Indicates this is an Executable file
The intersting thing is that in file:///usr/share/doc/packages/vsftpd I read that I do not need inted or xinted. There are various configs available so I selected the one I need (standalone), followed the instructions and it worked, almost. I still could not do an anonymous upload so I went back and changed the Write lines from NO to YES.
The second issue came in then, Stop, Start, and Restart are not being recognized by Konsole. This is the responses I get
server1:~ # vsftpd stop
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open config file:stop
server1:~ # vsftpd start
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open config file:start
server1:~ # vsftpd restart
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open config file:restart
server1:~ # vsftpd &
[1] 6542
500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket
server1:~ #
All the documentation I find points to using "&" to start the service but I am beginning to think this is not used to Stop or Restart the service. I am beginning to think that "&" is for start only and I keep getting
[B]500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket
because it is already running and I need to restart it for changes to take effect. I have Googled myself silly trying to find "&" and what stop and restart might be but I am having no luck
