Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: 500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd

Earlier today I was configuring VSFTPD on a new server. After installing via the yum package manager on a CentOS server and copying the configuration from another server to mimic its behavior I attempted to start VSFTD and it failed with the error noted in detail below. After the error details there is information on what caused the problem followed by how I was able to resolve the issue.

SVN Checkout Error: Malformed Network Data; Using TortoiseSVN or SVN CLI

I recently upgraded the Project Management Software, which happened to be Redmine, for a company and after the upgrade I received some complaints regarding SVN not functioning properly. I initially thought there is no way that the upgrade caused an issue with SVN since SVN and Redmine are completely separate however you can browse the SVN repositories from within Redmine. Below I describe the error in more detail including an image of the error from TortoiseSVN, what I did to resolve the issue, and another possible resolution if your issue is different than the one mentioned in this article.
