What should I do when Linux ECS vsftpd prompts error 500

Last Updated: Dec 24, 2017


The vsFTPd established FTP service in the ECS Linux system prompts the following when I connect to the client: 500 OOPS: vsftpd refusing to run with writable root inside chroot().


  1. Modify the configuration file vsftpd.conf on the server. Save the changes and then exit.

    1. vim /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
    2. # Add a configuration line allow_writeable_chroot=YES


  2. Restart the FTP service.
