    Vsftpd problem

    Hi Guys!

    I'm currently setting up my ubuntu 10.04 server running on a vps to host a Drupal Site. Now I'm already on the development stage of my drupal site and I also need to update some modules which could be done through FTP.

    Now while searching over the web, I saw that to enable FTP on my ubuntu server, I have to install vsftpd. I installed it and I successfully transferred drupal core files, etc. using sftp in filezilla.

    Now my drupal site is reminding me to update some modules as well as the core files which could be done through ftp. So I obeyed the reminder and clicked to update it. Now it asks for my FTP server account username, password etc. and I entered all just like how I enter it using filezilla and *POOF* it denies me from logging in.

    Now I searched that there are settings on the vsftpd.conf file that should be changed to fix that issue and after it's changed, the vsftpd service should be restarted.

    So first I tried

    sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
    and it resulted to "sudo: /etc/init.d/vsftpd: command not found"

    now I tried

    service vsftpd restart
    and it resulted to "exec: 129: restart: not found".

    Now I tried to see what's wrong with /etc/init.d/vsftpd by

    ls -l /etc/init.d
    and it results
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    21 Oct  2 06:29 vsftpd -> /lib/init/upstart-job
    From here I now don't know what to do next to solve my problem.

    Any help would be greatly appreaciated!

    Thank You!

    Try reimaging your VPS

    dpkg --get-selections | grep php
    dpkg --get-selections | grep sql
    dpkg --get-selections | grep apache
    If any arise

    apt purge package-name
