Please tell your distribution with version.

Have you disabled SElinux? use following command to disable it.
$ echo 0 > /selinux/enforce
or
$ setenforce 0

The following parameters should be in vsftpd.conf file

anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
chroot_local_user=YES
listen=YES
local_root=/var/www/html
pam_service_name=vsftpd
userlist_enable=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES

If not, set these parameters and restart the vsftpd using
$ service vsftpd restart

Add new ftp user using following command.
$ sudo adduser -c 'FTP USER hacker' -m hacker
where username is hacker, now set password for this new user.
$ sudo passwd hacker

Now try to login with these new details.

If you are trying to login using root user, it is not possible. It will give following error.
Code:
Response:	530 Permission denied.
Error:	Could not connect to server
Root user can be connected using sftp.

But if you are trying to connect using normal user which you made during installation or adduser command. It should be logged in.
But if your SElinux is enabled, it does not give login incorrect error. Generally it gives following error.
Code:
"500 oops cannot change directory /home/user in ftp"
can you tell me your linux distribution and version like are you using centOS or ubuntu or fedora?

If you are trying to login using regular user and you have set above parameter. It should log in.
There should not be repeat parameter in the file. Linux will read above one.
Example - You have pasted these parameters at bottom of the page in conf file. It will not work.
You have to search the parameter in the conf file and set the according to above comment.
