    It is not recommended to chnage because vsftpd does not support multiple anonymous accounts on one server.

    from proftpd to vsftpd

    Here is what i have done and work't.
    Fist you have to shut down proftpd (service proftpd stop) .
    Then, if you don't have vsftpd installed you run: yum install vsftpd
    After that you have to edit /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf and make some changes. Here is how my vsftpd.conf looks: .
    After making those changes and saving your vsftpd.conf you run: service vsftpd start and go to: http://your-address:81 (your isp config panell) enter your admin user and password and go to Management > Server > Settings and then you go to FTP tag (around center of the page) and change there to look like this:
    FTP Program: VS-FTP
    FTP conf. File: /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
    Save Log: check the box if you want a log file to be saved
    Then you hit the Save button and that's it.

    If you have problems please let me know.

    FTP is handled by your FTP daemon (VSFTPD), SFTP is handled by your SSH daemon (in most cases OpenSSH).

    To enable SFTP, you must give your users shell access.
