Installing an FTP Server (vsftpd) on Ubuntu 12.04

Installed vsftpd (Very Secure FTP Server) on my Ubuntu 12.04 (server).

1. References

 Probably the most secure and fastest FTP server for UNIX-like systems
 Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

2. Installation 

 Find and install vsftpd in Synaptic.

3. Configurations

$ sudo cp /etc/vsftpd.conf /etc/vsftpd.conf.bak.original    ; backup original
$ gksudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf

I made the following changes:
# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.

4. Restart the Server

$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart

5. Test

Using Filezilla, access "localhost" with a ubuntu account.

It worked!
