I am having a bit of trouble with the VSFTP configuration. Basically, if I try and log in with a created user and the correct password, it says authorization failed. My configuration file is as follows (minus comments) full file (with comments) at http://24.72.35.15/vsftpd.conf. It is based off some how-to or another.

anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
nopriv_user=nobody
ascii_upload_enable=YES
ftpd_banner=Welcome dude.
listen=YES
chroot_local_user=YES

Any suggestions?

try starting vsftp with -d for debug or -v for verbouse and look att the err mess.

or try reading the log an maybe increasing the logging.

What do you have in the file /etc/pam.d/vsftpd ?

It should show the following :

#%PAM-1.0

# Uncomment this to achieve what used to be ftpd -A.
# auth       required     pam_listfile.so item=user sense=allow file=/etc/ftpchroot onerr=fail

auth     required       pam_listfile.so item=user sense=deny file=/etc/ftpusers onerr=succeed
# Uncomment the following line for anonymous ftp.
#auth    sufficient     pam_ftp.so
auth     required       pam_unix2.so
auth     required       pam_shells.so
account  required       pam_unix2.so
password required       pam_unix2.so
session  required       pam_unix2.so

This also means that your users must have a shell which is listed in /etc/shells.

If you do not want that, comment out the line :

auth     required       pam_shells.so
