FTP services error


I attempted to FTP to my localhost, and this is what I got:

Code:
Connected to localhost.
500 OOPS: vsftpd: both local and anonymous access disabled!

ftp> anonymous
?Invalid command

ftp> myUsername
?Invalid command
Is this saying that it is not able to connect to the localhost user?

You may check your vsftpd.conf (e.g. /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf) if you have configured this

local_enable= YES
anonymous_enable=YES
