#StackBounty: #16.04 #server #ftp #vsftpd Trying to install vsftpd on Ubuntu 16.04

Bounty: 50

I’m trying to install an FTP server (vsftpd) on my Ubuntu 16.04 server from Scaleway.

I’ve did the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vsftpd
sudo service vsftpd status

I’m receiving the following result:

● vsftpd.service - vsftpd FTP server
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/vsftpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2018-08-31 22:26:53 CEST; 10min ago

What could be the problem of this?
