Question FTP : failed to change directory 550


I created a link to a directory and put it in the pub. When someone is trying to get into that directory through that link on the ftp page following error is popping up :

550 failed to change directory


My /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file looks like

anonymous_enable=YES
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
#anon_upload_enable=YES
#anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
#chown_uploads=YES
#chown_username=whoever
#xferlog_file=/var/log/vsftpd.log
xferlog_std_format=YES
#idle_session_timeout=600
#data_connection_timeout=120
#nopriv_user=ftpsecure
#async_abor_enable=YES
#ascii_upload_enable=YES
#ascii_download_enable=YES
pam_service_name=vsftpd
userlist_enable=YES
#enable for standalone mode
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES
#ls_recurse_enable=YES
#chroot_list_enable=YES
# (default follows)
#chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd/chroot_list

Please help ..

You can try to add:
Code:
chroot_local_user=NO
to see if it works, but IIRC you should use mount --bind to mount the directory you want in the user's homedir:
Code:
mount --bind /path/to/somedir /home/user/somedir
