Ubuntu :: Vsftpd Failed To Change Directory?

Here is my vsftpd.conf file:

# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf
# The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file
# loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.

Server :: VSFTPD: "cannot Change Directory"
i'm trying to setup a vsftpd server, SSL-enabled, based on local users with no shell access (/bin/false). I added /bin/false to /etc/shells so users can log in. I had a "GnuTLS error -8" at user login caused by the server sending a cleartext error message in SSL mode, so I disabled SSL and the error message came up at login:

USER privateftp
PASS ***************
500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/ftp/privateftp/

ACL are enabled and user privateftp has r-x rights on the directory. Changing user's shell has no effect. Changing directory POSIX owner has no effect.

my /etc/vsftpd.conf:

Server :: 550: Failed To Change Directory
My directory structure is


While I am changing to last work directory it's giving th error as:

550 Failed to change directory.

I have tried selinux issues,permission issues, anon issues,chroot issues but no solution.

Is there anything to do more than these issue ?

I am logging in as localuser. I can browse all the contents of 2nd work directory except the last work directory.

But in internet browser all works well,I can change into the last work directory and can also browse the directory but unable in command line.

Server :: Vsftpd - Keep Ftp User Inside Home Directory
I'm using Slackware 13.0 on my server and am going to be employing a file-sharing service for a client. I was able to enable a quota, but my problem now is keeping the user inside their home directory. I've searched around and found an old thread on here (from 2003) that gave me some ideas, but it still isn't working. Should I be running vsftpd standalone or leave it on the inetd? If I set the shell to /sbin/nologin or /bin/false, the user can't log in through FTP, even.

from /etc/passwd:

Server :: Vsftpd With Central Authentication, But Without Home Directory?
I am trying to build a ftp server with vsftpd. In general, I am not able to log in. I can only log in to the ftp server, if that same user is logged in to the server. I found out that this has to with my network setup. I am using OpenLDAP for centralized authentication and home directories are stored on an NFS server. The problem is that regular users are not allowed to log in to servers, therefore their home directories are not mounted. However I want to be able to give my users access to the ftp server without their home directories mounted. Is this possible with vsftpd and if so how do get this up and running. By the way, anonymous users are not allowed.

Server :: Firefox - Unable To Access VsFTPd Directory. Connection Times Out After Authentication
Seismicmike here. My first post. I'll try to be as clear and concise as possible. For the sake of this post, I'm going to use as a place holder for my public IP. On my web server, I would like to be able to access the /var/ftp directory through a web browser. I have successfully done so with Google Chrome, but I cannot access the directory in Firefox or IE. Both FF and IE ask me for authentication but then time out attempting to load the directory.

I suspect that there may be something up with switching to passive mode and/or that this issue may be more with my configuration of Firefox and not with the server (seeing as how Chrome works). Another possibility may be related to SSL. When I connect with FileZilla, I have to use the FTP over Explicit SSL/TLS option in order to connect. In any case I still would like to fix it. I would also like to avoid having to install FireFTP if at all possible.

Steps to reproduce (not that you can without my actual IP =J):

* Open Chrome
* Go to
* Enter username
* Enter password

CentOS 5 Server :: Vsftpd - Working With NFS Server As Home Directory
OS: CentOS 5.3
vsftpd ver: vsftpd-2.0.5-12.el5_3.1

I installed vsftpd server in one of my servers using "yum install vsftpd" command. NFS server is running in the other server and mounted as "/data" in this FTP server. root in FTP server has also root authority in NFS server. All the files and sub-folders under "/data" in FTP server have 755 or 766 mode. Even I modified vsftpd setting to allow root login.

When I login as root to FTP server with FileZilla client, I can see all the file list in root home directory and move to /data directory. I can download any file in a local HDD but I can not download any file in /data directory.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount /dev On /root/dev Failed : No Such File Or Directory
Ubuntu(10.04) was working fine, then some program crashed or something, and I just switched off (power offed) the computer. When I restarted it, this sort of stuff comes:


mount /dev on /root/dev failed : No such file or directory

and some more lines like that, and then 'Busybox' starts with [intramfs].I booted Ubuntu from a pen drive and ran fsck on the main partition. I just pressed 'y' for a long time (it asks stuff like should it continue repairing or something), and then it was done. I restarted the pc and it booted normally - it looked as if everything was fine.I started google chrome, and it said it couldn't find a personal config file .. ok. Then I tried opening a folder - nothing happens. The system monitor doesn't open, and windows that do open eventually are completely blank. I restarted the pc (this time by doing the normal restart), and it gave me the same 'Busybox' thing.I did the same procedure again, and got the same results. (ubuntu boots, programs dont work, then I restart and the Busybox thing comes again)One More Thing : The Ubuntu installed on the hard disk had all the recent updates (including the latest linux kernel) while the pen drive thing was around 2 months old I think. So maybe that's the cause?

Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev On /root/dev Failed: No Such File Or Directory
I have recently experienced a problem that occurred after an automatic update. After the update it said restart system. So I did and proceeded as normal. when after the reboot Firefox suddenly stopped working, crashed and upon clicking it again only a blank box appeared. Then my other apps followed and i soon couldn't do anything so i shut down my computer. Upon restart I got a black screen with tons of text and something around the lines of

mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory


So I rebooted and pressed shift to open that grub thing and booted from an earlier kernel. This time it said checking HD for errors and after booted normally. Everything seemed fine but next day it did it again. Starting with Firefox crashing and then everything else. I again booted from a previous kernel and it worked but upon checking with uname -a it did not list the kernel i chose to boot from. So I decided to upgrade 10.04 to 10.10. This upgraded my kernel and deleted the old ones so i am hoping i am good now.
