[Debian] Restore The Deleted Config Files

Last time, I was configuring VSFTP on Debian, really I don’t know what happened but I deleted the vsftpd.conf file :'(. For this I published this quick tips, to how restore the deleted config file.


Whenever, you reinstall the package, the config file will never restored.

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall -y vsftpd

To check, the config file was part of which package:

$ dpkg -S vsftpd.conf
vsftpd: /etc/vsftpd.conf

Great, so to force the package installation, and restore the conf file, run:

$ sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install --reinstall vsftpd
...
Configuration file `/etc/vsftpd.conf', does not exist on system.
Installing new config file as you requested.
vsftpd user (ftp) already exists, doing nothing.
...

Enjoy !
