Im trying to setup an FTP-serve on Ubuntu 11. I can log in a local user, and read and copy files to the computer I am accessing from. But I can't do any write operations on the server.
The error is 553 could not create file.
I've been reading alot on this matter in different forums, and this seems to be a common problem. But so far I haven't found any solutions. I have done most of the things that are often mentioned:
I have the following settings in the vsftpd.conf:
Local users are allowed to login
Write is enabled
Local umask = 022
I am not running SELinux. At least I don't think so. This is a fresh installation from a VPS provider. And I couldnt the package in the list of installed applications.
Doesn't seem to have a firewall installed? I read that UFW is supposed to be on Ubuntu by default, but the UFW command is "not found", when trying to use it.
The permission on the folders/files seem to be 755. Shouldnt that be enough? (I am new to the Linux, so if I am missing out on something basic about permission, please enlighten me...)
