    Hi,

    I have a VPS running DNS-only, can I add FTP functionality on this DNS-only server? How?

    My purpose is to use WHM Backup Features on my main WHM/cPanel server and FTP'd the files to my DNS-only server.

    Hello :)

    FTP functionality is not integrated into cPanel DNS-Only by default. However, you are welcome to install a system package such as PureFTP through YUM and configure it manually. Searching for "YUM Pure-ftpd" on Google yields several tutorials on this that should be of help to you.

    Thank you.

    I cannot install Pure-FTPD.
    I get this error:
    No package pure-ftpd available.

    Is there something I need to edit. I only installed Cpanel DNS-only on this server.

    Yes, you have to ensure there is a repository installed that includes the package. Searching for "YUM Pure-ftpd" on Google shows a few tutorials on how to complete this.

    Thank you.

    Okay, I solved my issue.

    /etc/yum.conf has excludes mysql* pure-fptd* pro-ftpd* etc
    so I deleted those files and pure-ftpd is now installed and running.

    Do you mean you removed all excludes in /etc/yum.conf ?
    You shouldn't.
