How to Install Certificates on vsftpd Server

This article will go into detail on how to install certificates on vsftpd Server.

  1. Combine your certificate and CA certificate(s) into one file (e.g. your.server.pem).
  2. Move the file created, as a result of the previous step, to the location where you store certificates (Examples: /usr/share/ssl/certs/, /etc/ssl/certs/)
  3. Move your private key, that you created when you generated your CSR, to the location where you store private keys. (e.g. /etc/ssl/certs/private/)
  4. Update 'vsftpd.conf' in your favorite text-editor with:
    • rsa_cert_file = /path/to/your.server.pem
    • rsa_private_key_file = /path/to/your.key
  5. Restart vsftpd. Examples:
    • /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
  6. /sbin/service/vsftpd restart
