This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

you should use adduser instead of useradd see this question – Kiwy Mar 24 '14 at 12:42
I tried that but no success – Shoaib Chikate Mar 24 '14 at 12:50
add your vftpd config file, whitout this it will be hard. – Kiwy Mar 24 '14 at 12:57
But that doesn't solve my problem. And that answer is posted by me only. – Shoaib Chikate Mar 24 '14 at 13:38
@ShoaibChikate - you posted an identical A to this Q and the one that Kiwy mentioned and this solution doesn't solve the problem here or there? Then why did you post either of them? – slm Mar 24 '14 at 15:22

Back up the config file before making a change;

sudo cp /etc/vsftpd.conf /etc/vsftpd.conf.back

and then edit vsftpd.conf (with vi or nano)

nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Then make the following change


Save your change and restart the ftp server (if you use nano hit CTRL+O & enter to save then CTRL+X to exit)

sudo service vsftpd restart
