RE. FTP Service not running on my droplet

Posted December 24, 2014 1.8k views

Hello my droplet is running centos 6.5 x64 and the ftp service is not running. Can someone help me with the command that I need to start the service.


  • Have you installed and configured an FTP service on your droplet? None of our droplets come with a pre-installed FTP service but SFTP is available by default on port 22. On a new droplet you will need to connect via ssh at least once in order to replace your temporary password before making an SFTP connection.

  • Yes I have ftp installed, I have zpanel. What happened is that I renamed my droplet and ftp stop working. I did update the etc/host and etc/hostname but still I can not get it to start.

Yes, I had ftp installed. I found my problem
It was related to when I made a copy of my VM. I had to edit my host files.

There is one thing I still can not figure out is how to get wordpress multisite to work. The main site shows up but the sub-domains got to my zpanel page.
