Unhappy CentOS 5 + vsftpd + upload = error


I must admit I'm fairly new to linux, but after reading lots of stuff online for the last few days, I still haven't been able to solve my problem and I'm asking for help.
I'm having a problem with uploading via ftp anonymously and/or with a user using CentOS 5.

here is what I have...


##vsftpd.conf##
anonymous_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_enable=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
anon_other_write_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
dirlist_enable=YES
no_anon_password=YES
file_open_mode=0777
guest_enable=YES
listen=yes
listen_port=21
pam_service_name=vsftpd





In the root, I have made two folders upload1 and upload2.
I have set upload with chown to ftp user and ftp group
and set upload 2 with chown to user john, and group ftp.

I have chmod both folders with 777.

When I log in as john, or anonymously, I can see and download files. But when I try to upload I get an upload not allowed message.
or with winxp:
an error occured copying a file to the Ftp Server. Make sure you have permission to put files on the server. Details:
200 switching to Binary mode
227 Entering passive mode (192,168,1,109,186,182)
553 Could not create file.




..help?

Unhappy

I'm experiencing the same frustrating problem...

I'm on brand new install of CentOS 5.1 with vsftpd v2.0.5 r10.el5

Here's my stuff...

/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf:

Code:
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
anonymous_enable=YES
anon_umask=666
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_other_write_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=NO
anon_world_readable_only=NO
connect_from_port_20=YES
pam_service_name=vsftpd
listen=YES
no_anon_password=YES
ascii_download_enable=YES
ascii_upload_enable=YES

Here's my directory tree...

/var
Code:
total 164
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Jan 16 15:20 account
drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4096 Jan 17 14:44 cache

drwxr-xr-x  6 root root 4096 Jan 16 15:20 www
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Jan 16 15:20 yp
/var/ftp
Code:
total 24
drwxrwxrwx 2 ftp  ftp  4096 Jan 18 06:25 dropbox
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 14  2007 pub
Here's what the processes look like when the ftp client is connected after the upload attempt.

Code:
[root]# ps -ef | grep ftp
root     12346     1  0 06:40 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
nobody   12355 12346  0 06:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
ftp      12357 12355  0 06:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
root     12367 11715  0 06:41 pts/0    00:00:00 grep ftp

I'm trying to anonymously upload a new file to the folder "dropbox" and getting FTP 553 errors from both Linux and Windows IE ftp clients. I can download fine.

Fixed my problem after making the post above.

Found answer here...

SELinux was interfering. Disabling SELinux in /etc/selinux/config fixed it.
