great thanks! VSFTP is one that got updated. Is this some new FTP security best practice? I was looking on the Arch linux forums and I came across a workaround, I'm not sure if this exists on other distributions though: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1038842#p1038842 Per Hansson January 12, 2012 at
File/Directory Permissions Be sure that the user that you are logging in as actually has permissions to be in the directory. It is best practice to create Linux users specifically for FTP, that can't login via SSH. The home folder will be visible /home/vimal once accessed with a client. Are we pretty much just screwed if we are stuck with version 2.3.5-1ubuntu2? https://www.liquidweb.com/kb/error-500-oops-vsftpd-refusing-to-run-with-writable-root-inside-chroot-solved/

Physically locating the server Is it illegal for regular US citizens to possess or read documents leaked by Wikileaks? I fiddled with something (permissions--I was trying to make the files in the ftp users folders visible to me outside of su through dolphin).

Cheers pwm May 8, 2012 at 2:44 pm I agree with Massimo, the easiest way to deal with this imho is to move everything into a writable subdir, then chmod a-w Below i'll try to give simple example: For start we need to build topology of user directory: /home (ro) |-someuser (rw,700) |-ftp_upload (ro,555) - ch_rooting here, required ro by vsftpd :( Same behavior with the previous version 2.3.5 Ben June 18, 2012 at 7:38 pm Try using vsftpd-ext instead. Why can't we use the toilet when the train isn't moving?

This affects users that have home directories of /var/www/html because the execute bit normally isn't set for the world on /var/www or /var/www/html. Just create an home for the user with chmod 555 and then, inside that, create a home for the website (or websites), with chmod 755 or the one you need: everything

Finally the answer was simple. Cappo75 May 9, 2013 at 7:29 am thankyou Mark! I'll also get an "I <3 Mark" tattoo or something. White I try running vsftpd version 3.0 with allow_writable_chroot=YES and it won't start.
I did need to add another package in order for add-apt-repository to work: sudo apt-get install python-software-properties After that your patch installed and worked beautifully!
