I'm using Fedora 16, and yum the vsftpd. At first any thing is OK but vsftpd can't start automatically when system boot. So I put links in wants.

cd /etc/systemd/system/
ln -s /lib/systemd/system/vsftpd.service
cd /etc/systemd/system/
ln -s /lib/systemd/system/vsftpd.service

Then, reboot, vsftpd starts with system, but there isn't any vsftpd.service in /lib/systemed/system/*wants/, so I can not let it stop automatically start, even use

systemctl off vsftpd.service

What's more, I can't visit /var via ftp client.

Sorry, I'm not English speaker.

Please read the Fedora documentation on how to use "systemd" - the replacement service manager:

For example:

# systemctl enable vsftpd.service

This is the proper way to enable vsftpd on boot.

You may also find the documentation in your native language by switching the language with the drop-down box at the top left of the page.
