vsFTP

OK, if you need to install FTP here is a quick and totally insecure way to do it!! I am just going to get the most simple FTP server running here, but you will probably want to do something to secure it better at some point. Just use OpenSSH if you simply need to move files over from development to production.

Install
$ sudo apt-get install vsftpd
Configure it's configuration file located at /etc/vsftpd.conf
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
chroot_local_user=YES
Restart
$ sudo restart vsftpd
