A powerful, easy-to-use, award-winning FTP server






Serv-U is an easy-to-use, powerful, award-winning FTP server created by Rob Beckers. An FTP server uses the FTP protocol to share files across the Internet.

Serv-U is not only 100% compliant with the current FTP standard, but also includes numerous features unique to Serv-U that make it a perfect file sharing solution for virtually everyone.

1) Start a shell.
2) Navigate to the directory where the installer is stored:

cd ~/Downloads

3) Change to root (su) since the installer requires root access.
4) Change the permissions of the file to allow execution:

chmod 777 "Serv-U-11.0-Linux-x86_64-Install"

5) Running the installer:

    With a GUI (GNOME or KDE):


    With a console only:

        ./Serv-U-11.0-Linux-x86_64-Install --mode console
