FTP Permissions [SOLVED]

Postby jackmason on Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:17 pm

I installed vsftpd on Mint 14. I am able to connect with my username and password. However, when I try to upload a file into /home, /home/myacct, or any other directory, I get a 550 permission error message. Apparently, there is some permission I need to set before I can upload files? I have set the permissions on /home and /home/myacct to drwxrwxrwx so that is not it.

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I haven't used vsftp in such a long time all I have are little cryptic notes I've kept. See if the following helps:

Somewhere in /etc/vsftpd.conf is a line that looks something like this:
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
#write_enable=YES

Remove the # sign from the last line so that it looks like this:
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
write_enable=YES

Then restart the service:
Code: Select all
sudo service vsftpd restart

Thank you very much. That did solve it.

If you have not been using vsftpd, is there a better ftp server we should look at using?

Thanks again.

Sorry, I don't use any ftp. I used vsftpd back in the day when no matter what I did I couldn't get samba to work. Now all I use is Samba even in an all Linux network.
