Install VSFTPD on Ubuntu 14.10

sudo apt-get install vsftpd
sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Then change:

local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
chroot_local_user=YES
pam_service_name=ftp (default is vsftpd, which will give “530 Login incorrect”)
local_root=/home (else you will get “500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot ()”)

Then save.

sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
