Error: 500 OOPS: VSFTPD Error Solved

In this article, we discuss how to remedy the following error message in VSFTPD.

Preflight Check

  • These instructions are intended specifically for solving the error:
  • 500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot().
  • We will be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 32 server, and logged in as the root user.

How to Repair

This error may occur when attempting to connect to a vsftpd FTP server that is configured to jail (prevent from accessing other directories) each FTP user. It is best practice to create Linux users specifically for FTP, that can’t log in via SSH. For example, if you wanted to remove SSH access for testuser, then you’d use the following command:

usermod -s /sbin/nologin testuser
