    vsftpd


    I have been getting the following error whenever authentication for an anonymous user.

    500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable anonymous root

    Ive turned up something on PAM but i cannot seem to sort this out. Attempting to use Local logins only results in failed logins for everything. any ideas or input? my favorate would be an example .conf file, but a simple explination would be more than enough.

    OK, I'm sorry, I partialy answered my own question, i have the user that vtp runs as chrooted into my ftp dir and vsftpd doesn't like that. I still have no luck at all with local user logins, but at least one block is out of the way.

    I too had local user login problems. However when I install most server apps I prefer to do so from source. This is especially true of vsftpd because it's so incredibly small (but don't let its size fool you, it's the best!).

    It might not have a pam file

    cp -a /etc/pam.d/sshd /etc/pam.d/vsftpd
