    vsftp got it fixed by doing this below thanks:

    WEll, the # indicates a comment, so you have to get rid of those for sure.

    You will probably want to ensure these are also set; (remove #)
    local_enable=YES
    anonymous_enable=NO

    chroot_local_user=YES
    Leave the line about chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list commented out, unless you actually have a vsftp.chroot_list file in that location.

    Then perform service vsftpd stop and service vsftpd start and you should be all set.

    thank you
