On one of several CentOS servers, I cannot push files. From my /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
The folder into which I was attempting to push the files belonged to the user under whose credentials i was logged in.
chown -R myFtpUser .
chmod -R 755 .
still, 553 could not create file
So I changed the folder ownership to the ftp user -- presumably the user under whose credentials the vsftpd daemon runs.
What else do I need to check?
