I'm runnning vsftpd on Raspberry Pi, Debian 7.0.
I want to use it to do backups in my Home-LAN only, so security is not an issue (behind NAT/Firewall, only trusted users). I would like full access as anonymous user to a given path
/mnt/hd1 which has owner root and full rights 777.
My conf is currently
# cat /etc/vsftpd.conf listen=YES anonymous_enable=YES write_enable=YES anon_upload_enable=YES anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES anon_root=/mnt/hd1
With this I get the client error
500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()
I tried adding
but then my vsftps doesn't start anymore.
How should I configure vsftpd to have full access to a given directory as an anonymous user?
