How to start or stop FTP service on a Plesk server

Question

How to check status, active/deactivate FTP service for the whole server?

Answer

For Linux

FTP is working via the xinetd service. It is possible to start, stop, restart the service, as well as show its status and reload the settings (without actual restart of the service).

Manage service via Plesk interface:

If ‘systemctl’ is unknown, use the commands below.

Manage service via SSH:

Connect to the server via SSH and use the following commands:

# service xinetd start

# service xinetd restart

# service xinetd status

For SystemD OSes:

# systemctl stop xinetd.service

# systemctl reload xinetd.service

For Windows

Manage service via Plesk interface:

Go to Plesk > Tools & Settings > Services Management – FTP Server

 

Manage service via RDP:

Connect to the server via RDP and restart ‘Microsoft FTP Service’ in Windows Services console.
