Hello ,

I have got the solution, Follow the below Steps :

1) Install ufw and run below commands :
a) apt update
b) apt install ufw
c) ufw allow OpenSSH
d) ufw enable /// check status with command : ufw status
e) sudo ufw allow 20/tcp
sudo ufw allow 21/tcp
sudo ufw allow 990/tcp
sudo ufw allow 40000:50000/tcp

2) Install vsftpd
a) sudo apt-get install vsftpd

b) sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Add /edit below text
# Allow anonymous FTP? (Disabled by default).
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.

# Prevent the FTP-connected user from accessing any files or commands outside
# the directory tree

# Add a user_sub_token in order to insert the username in our local_root directory
# path so our configuration will work for this user and any future users that might
# be added


# Set up the configuration so that access is given to a user only when they
# are explicitly added to a list rather than by default

sudo chown nobody:nogroup /var/www/ftp
sudo chmod a-w /var/www/ftp
sudo chown ftpuser:ftpuser /var/www/ftp/myApplication

sudo systemctl restart vsftpd

Also must added :

HTTP on port 80, which is what unencrypted web servers use, using sudo ufw allow http or sudo ufw allow 80
HTTPS on port 443, which is what encrypted web servers use, using sudo ufw allow https or sudo ufw allow 443
FTP on port 21, which is used for unencrypted file transfers (which you probably shouldn't use anyway), using sudo ufw allow ftp or sudo ufw allow 21/tcp

New updates come with :
sudo apt-get install php7.2-curl

Actually, you need to see what the version of PHP you installed here "/etc/php/"

We have find the solution with below steps:
Go with Access Command prompt

# sudo mysql

mysql > GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'username'@'localhost';

mysql> exit;


And  For specified database:

GRANT ALL ON databasename TO 'username'@'localhost';

Hope help you lots.

"The certificate is not trusted in all web browsers. You may need to install an Intermediate/chain certificate to link it to a trusted root certificate."

Anyone can suggest about this.

I have reviewed your server configer script, it seems it configured very well. there may be issue with the .crt and .key files of content format.
