Perform the installation of vestacp through custom configurations:

Code: Select all

bash vst-install.sh --force --nginx yes --apache yes --phpfpm no --named yes --remi yes --vsftpd yes --proftpd no --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --quota yes --exim yes --dovecot yes --spamassassin yes --clamav yes --softaculous yes --mysql yes --postgresql yes --hostname myowndns123.net --email myemail@email.com --password mypassword`
I have also made the settings to have my own custom DNS with my own domain for example: myowndns123.net

Now create my FTP account for the following example domain: example.com and user FTP: admin_example and password: example

I am using FileZilla I tried the current versions even old versions.

I have tried different ways to access from: FTP - SSH FILE TRANFER PROTOCOL with port 22 and I also tried it with port 21 in the same way with: FTP - FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL.

The data I enter are:

Code: Select all

    Server: example.com (I have also tried adding the server's fixed IP and the DNS linked domain myowndns123.net)
    User: admin_example
    Password: example
    Port: 21 (I have also used port 22)
Note: Finally I tried to change a new FTP password and also tried to create a new FTP user and password. Not to mention that the website is configured with a free SSL certificate.
This is the answer I get from FileZilla:

Please help some configurations that you must make in vestacp to be able to use FTP.

You have a possible problem related to passive mode or local lan IP on your server. Try to configure the passive mode IP in the vsftpd.conf and restart the service.
