If you’ve landed on this page, you’re probably looking for a FTP setup with Open LiteSpeed. Lets talk about the most reliable, fastest web hosting server.
Open LiteSpeed Project - OpenLiteSpeed is the Open Source edition of LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise. Read for more details.
ProFTPD - ProFTPD grew out of the desire to have a secure and configurable FTP server.
What Do FTP Servers Do?
FTP servers, and the more secure SFTP Server software, perform 2 basic tasks: “Put” and “Get.” You can put files on the FTP Server or get files from the FTP Server. Every website designer or developer need solution to work fast on web hosting server for regular website maintenance.

How to add website ( Virtual Host ) -
After this complexity started. How to give access to developer as they requested FTP access ? :-) After investing half day, we decided to install ProFTPD which is quite simple using below steps.
yum -y install proftpd
sed -i "s/ProFTPD server/hostname/g" /etc/proftpd.conf
systemctl enable proftpd
service start proftpd
Assuming you have created virtual host for domain and their HOMEDIR is under /home only.
domain - domainname.com
useradd ftpuser -d /home/domainname.com -p PASSWORD -M
// Add user in nobody group after creating ftp user
sudo usermod -a -G nobody ftpuser
// Correct permission
sudo chmod -R 775 /home/domainname.com
// Change owner of domain directory
chown -R ftpuser:ftpuser /home/domainname.com/html/
