    Hi

    Check the vsftpd.conf to see if the following line is hashed # out
    Code:
    # Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
    #local_enable=YES
    Remove the hash #
    Code:
    # Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
    local_enable=YES
    Restart vsftpd

    just a quick warning with vsftpd, if you run into errors after editting the permissions (to make it easier for other users on the machine to dump stuff into the ftp home directory) set the root user to have read only access, others to read only, and users and such can have read/write. this will keep it functioning for everyone while making it easier to throw crap into the /home/ftp folder.

    (i editted the permissions using thunar as root)
