vsftpd Error 500


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I followed the topic 'Install vsftpd on fedora core 4' and completed setup. However, now when I try to log in, it rejects my username and/or password (even though I know both are correct). If I use the terminal to log in, I get the following:

ftp> open localhost

Connected to localhost.localdomain.

500 OOPS: failed to open vsftpd log file:/var/log/vsftpd.log

 

I have checked to see if the file exists (which it does) and made sure the permissions are not an issue. Does anyone know why it is returning this message and how to solve it?

 

Thanks!

Iyce

When you say checked permissions.. did you check ownership as well?

 

My guess vsftpd will run as ftp:ftp .. so you should make sure it owns the file.

I've still got the error. The permissions are ftp as the file owner and ftp as the group as well. So, I'm a little confused as to why I'm still getting the error...

 

Any other ideas?
