    Question How to use FTP on Ubuntu VPS on OpenVz

    Hello everyone! I have no idea what I am doing.

    I bought a "Virtual Private Server" on OpenVz from It is running Ubuntu 13.10 x64. My main IP is <removed>
    I have no idea how to administer an Ubuntu server. I use Windows 8. I downloaded putty to SSH into my server.

    Could someone please explain to me in the simplest of terms how to install an "FTP Daemon" on my server so I can upload files and create my website?

    The only reason I bought this Virtual Private Server is to make a website with FTP. This is much harder than I anticipated lol.

    Thank you very much!

    please do not post your public ip on a forum, it allows others to access your server

    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.

    If you are just using ftp to transfer files, just use sftp instead as it is already included with openssh-server.

    I would recommend securing ssh on your server before doing anything else. That way you make sure no one is able to access your machine.

    See here:

    Sidenote, I would only run a LTS release like 12.04 on a production server. A 6 month release cycle is too short for my tastes.
