can't get vsftpd to work properly


I have vsftpd running in a Fedora Core 5 system. I can't get users to login to /home/javier because I get the following error message:

500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/javier

The group owner for /home/javier is javier and users belong to this group. The file permissions for /home/javier are: drwxrwx---

Next I show my full vsftpd.conf file:

anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=NO
local_umask=022
chroot_local_user=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
pam_service_name=vsftpd
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Alfredo Fernández

Have you tried to make /home/javier have more permissions just to see if it works?

Use:
Code:
chmod 775 /home/javier
If this works then you know that vsftp is using a user that doesn't have permissions. If it doesn't work, you're having some problem other than user permissions.

I've tested what you said and file permissions is not the problem. Actually, I've done some more research on the web and found the problem. I had to modify one of SELinux policies with the following command. I hope this solution helps others.

setsebool -P ftp_home_dir=1

Thank you,

Alfredo
