VestaCP - FTP not working

Problem: Can't connect to FTP server running on a VPS/Dedicated Server that has VestaCP installed

Solution: For some reason, vsftpd - the FTP server software shipped with VestaCP does not allow connections in passive mode. In order to fix the, open the vsFTPd configuration file (/etc/vsftpd.conf or /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf) and change set pasv_enable from YES to NO. Then, restart the vsFTPd service.
