    starting vsftpd

    I am trying to start vsftpd server by typing /etc/init.d/vsftpd start.

    All I get is some message stating

    500 OOPS: cannot open config file:start

    What is going on? My vsftpd.conf is in /etc

    your conf file should be at /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
    Operating System: GNU Emacs

    Okay, It seems it is running. At least I see it when I run ps aux.
    But it seems to start differently then explained on the web.

    On the website, it told me to run the command '/etc/init.d/vsftpd start'
    this caused an error..
    "500 OOPS: cannot open config file:start"

    I then ran the command '/usr/sbin/vsftpd &' and seems to start up.
    What's the difference?
