edit /etc/vsftpd.conf and add the following:

userlist_enable=YES
userlist_deny=YES
userlist_file=/etc/vsftpd.user_list

Then edit /etc/vsftpd.user_list and add he usernames that you want to deny ftp access. You can do this the other way around (add the users that you will 'allow to ftp'). run this:

man vsftpd.conf

And do a search for options starting with 'userlist_'.

you can. edit /etc/vsftpd.conf and uncomment the following lines:

chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list

Now, create the file /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list and add the usernames you want to jail to their home directory.


u can do this with wu-ftp. i'm digging my notes for that but i think i lost it.

Sorry to invade on your post, but I need to know this.
How do you deny anyone but anonymous to use the wu-ftpd server?

check /etc/ftpaccess. not sure how to set that up but you need to set the uid/gid of the users that you don't want to have ftp access.
