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.

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.
