Also, the config files are in /etc/vsftpd/ as vsftpd.conf

The find commend should have reported on where you config where, but it returned nothing. Could you please just hummor me with sending me the output of
ls -l /etc/vsftpd/*;
ls -l /etc/vsftp*;
You are right the config file should be /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.com.

OK. I type the find command wrote. Stupid typo. But that doesn't matter anymore.

Let's try starting vsftp manually.
/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf;
It should just hang there.
Try to ftp from another terminal window.

There we have it. I assume you vsftd.conf is still them same as what you posted before. Can you post the vsftpd.user_list and vsftpd.ftpuser?

I can't believe I missed this one. It was right there in front of my face. You can't have blank lines in the config. Make the blank lines start with #.
Then run
/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd.conf
If it hangs then you are good control-c.
Then run /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart;
Then try to ftp.

Gerard,

I took out the blank lines and did everything you mentioned. This is what happens:

Apparently, it just won't shut down and I don't know why and obviously, it doesn't run. I don't know what the f---ing problem is and I'm so pissed (not at you) at this situation. I had it working fine less than a week ago and now I cannot get any FTP to work at all.

[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
Shutting down vsftpd: [FAILED]
Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: [ OK ]
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
Shutting down vsftpd: [FAILED]
Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: [ OK ]
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]#

Scott,
vsftp is very tempermental. I don't think it is actually starting. What happens when you try to start it manually.
/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftp/vsftpd.conf.
Does it give you an error or does to just hang there? Hanging there is good that means it is waiting for a connection.
It can be very fustrating to get things to work, but that is part of learning. We'll get this to work.
Gerard
