WingFTP service auto-start failed in CentOS 8

Thu Jun 25, 2020 7:14 am

SELinux is enabled under CentOS 8.0 by default, it prevents running wftpserver service when WingFTP is installed under user home directory or root directory.

So please download WingFTP version 6.5.2+, and install it under the directory "/opt".

Or you can disable SELinux by the following commands:

sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux

Replace the line:

sudo reboot
