FTP server configuration Amazon EC2

OK, one of those annoying problems. You want / need an FTP server. Usually this is easy. I have build dozens of them, so an FTP server on Amazon a doddle you would think.

There are a few FTP servers that I use VSFTPD and PureFTP

I started with VSFTP as this is pretty easy to use.

yum install vsftpd

service vsftpd start

Open filezilla and FTP to the server. Because it is a default install anonymous is allowed you get a connection wow it works.

Issue an ls or LIST for the pub directory and then the pain starts.
