anonymous is not the same as root. Do you have write_enable=YES? to use root, you have to allow local_enable=YES set in /etc/vsftpd.conf? if you want to use anonymous, use anonymous_enable=YES and no_anon_password=YES. see here

comment Putting Files in Ascending order (not on time stamp basis) in Unix
by default ls doesn't sort on time stamp basis, but alphabetically. To sort by time stamp, one must use the ls -t (newest first).
