Install missing app (vsftpd)


I was wondering how to install vsftpd after having performed a HestiaCP setup.

Is there a step-by-step tutorial?

Thanks for any help!

Hello @jobet,

Currently we are working on those kind of tutorials as part of our 1.2.0 release. How ever

First install vsftpd

And then follow whose steps

The required config files can be found in


You also need to modify /usr/local/hestia/conf/hestia.conf and search for line
and replace it with FTP_SYSTEM=‘vsftpd’

If it doesn’t exists you can create it without any issues…

Best regards


Please confirm if it is working then we can add it easy to our documentation for future users…

Hi @eris,

I’ll try it later on the afternoon.

I’ll let you know how it goes!
