Seriously speaking, you do not want that.. ftp is a legacy protocol and very unsafe even for normal users not to even mention for root! So, I strongly urge you to use sftp(ssh ftp) instead.

vsftpd stands for Very Secure FTP Daemon (a kind of ftp server). And if I'm not mistake it NOT allow you login as root user unless you change your config file or build your modified vsftpd source code :-).

Find: vsftpd.ftpusers AND vsftpd.user_list

Open them with vi or whatever text editor you like, take out the "root" line. Save and then you can login as root for ftp.

But be sure that vsftpd.conf contains this line
userlist_enable=YES

i do not have the user config file in my /etc/, and i put userlist_enable in my vsftpd.conf, and nothing happend. I want to log in as root also (even though you guys think its not safe). I did a search and it didnt find either of these vsftpd.ftpusers AND vsftpd.user_list
