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.

Installing Serv-U Linux
After downloading the Serv-U Linux installer, permissions need  to be set in order to run the installer.  To do this:
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
Running Serv-U From GNOME or KDE
1) Select the "Applications | Serv-U | Serv-U Tray" option.
2) Click on the tray application in the system tray, select  "Start Serv-U".
3) To configure Serv-U, click on the tray application, select  "Start Management Console" or simply double click on the tray  icon.
Running Serv-U From the Console

1) Navigate to the installation directory:

cd /usr/local/Serv-U

2) Change permissions to root (with su).
3) Start Serv-U: "./Serv-U"
4) To configure Serv-U (if installed with "--mode console") connect to the server with a web browser on port 8080.
