VSFTPD Error [500 OOPS: missing value in config file for: ]
Hi gurus out there, can anyone from you would like to extend a helping hand? Pls....
I have installed for the 3rd time and kept having the same problem. I've visited and read many mailing list but can't find answer to my question.
Iam using vsftpd 1.20 under my RH9.0 Server, and was compiled from source. However I encountered problems everytime I invoke vsftpd sevice to start it says [OK] but, nothing in the background seem to be running.
Restarting it produce a result :
Was there any reason/or any service that may interfere with vsftpd service? Which prohibit my ftp service to run??? What I mean is just to START the service?
another, command results something like this:
500 OOPS: missing value in config file for:
what could be the problem. Pls let me post my config and pls comment if something went wrong:
#Standalone mode instead of xinetd (daemonized)
#Uncomment to bind to specific address
#Uncomment next 2 lines to allow anonymous uploads
#Uncomment the next line if local_enable=YES above is commented out:
I am sure that nothing on my firewall prohibit vsftpd service from running. because i even turned it off but nothing seemed to be going ok.
If this is still an issue to anyone, check that there are no empty lines with tabs or something like that on in "vsftpd.conf", if so remove that line and try start vsftpd again. I had this problem and for me that was all that was needed.
