Unable to install FTP

Post by RedRaymann »

Hi,

I've a Raspberry Pi 3 with Kodi and Pi-Hole.
It al works great! Thanks so far!

Yesterday I installed PiVPN to use my network and Pi-Hole while in the car or in the office.
Unfortunately, I'm facing a problem now.

To get everything working on my phone, i need to copy the .ovpn file from the Pi to my phone.

Tutorials say i need to copy the file from the Pi with a SFTP program, like ProFTP of vsFTPD.
Before using Diet-Pi logging in true FTP was easy. With Diet-Pi i need to install FTP program. But both programs wont instal!

I'm getting a blue screen (logged in with Putty) with the following text;

Code: Select all

Nothing works.

I'm planning to go back to a back-up made a month ago, but if i'm missing something, let me know!

I gave up. Tried to start the services, removed PiVPN, nothing worked anymore.

I have installed a backup of two months old. VsFTPd has been installed at once. This weekend I will try PiVPN again.
