http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am struggling to work out why when I try to ftp files to my debian server (running turnkey LAMP 12.1) I am getting a permission denied error (550 permission denied). selinux is turned off, have checked this with sestatus and the file /etc/sysconfig/selinux doesnt exist. I have the following settings in vsftp.conf: Quote: listen=YES anonymous_enable=NO write_enable=YES dirmessage_enable=YES use_localtime=YES xferlog_enable=YES connect_from_port_20=YES data_connection_timeout=120 ftpd_banner=Welcome to SAMS FTP service. chroot_local_user=YES chroot (HowTos)
