You can try edit this file if this parameter is commented or not present : /etc/vsftpd.conf

 chown root:root /home/username

then run command :

service vsftpd restart

This solution might help you.

  • File is not located in this path :- /etc/vsftpd.conf Jan 19, 2018 at 11:32
  • You need to use function such as 'locate vsftpd' and 'find vsfpd' etc to find file . this location is for apache servers. Jan 19, 2018 at 11:49
  • /usr/share/augeas/lenses/dist/vsftpd.aug /usr/share/augeas/lenses/dist/tests/test_vsftpd.aug, /usr/share/sosreport/sos/plugins/vsftpd.py, /usr/share/sosreport/sos/plugins/__pycache__/vsftpd.cpython-35.pyc Jan 19, 2018 at 11:51
