    Hello. I followed this tutorial for ubuntu 16.04. https://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-...-and-bandwidth-management-on-ubuntu-14.04-lts. And when I put all the data to connect with filezilla I get this error. Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".Also tested from the ubuntu terminal and I get connection refused. anyone know how I can solve it? I am using a vps server. checked port 21 and it is open.
    Thank you very much.

    I'm checking and pure-ftpd apparently does not start.
    I execute Systemctl status pure-ftpd-mysql.service
    And shows me this:
    Root @ vps338639: /etc/init.d# systemctl status pure-ftpd-mysql.service
    ‚óŹ pure-ftpd-mysql.service

    Does anyone know what's wrong?

    Thank you very much.

    Edit the file:

    /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/ChrootEveryone

    and change its content to "yes".

    If I think I have it right. Inside the file I put this
    echo "yes"> / etc / pure-ftpd / conf / ChrootEveryone

    No, that's wrong. Please do what I told you above.

    I just changed it and now it connects and goes perfect.
    From what I understood the error esque I copied all the line of the tutorial and only made it necessary to put Yes in the file that has to be created.

    Thank you very much for your great help. Everything is working properly now.

    regards

    Yes. The line is a command which should have been executed, it creates the file /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/ChrootEveryone with the word "yes" inside.

    If correct, you are quite right, as you can see I am quite new to Linux. For another time, it sure does not happen to me anymore, hahaha

    Thank you very much for helping me, regards.
