You may need to edit your vsftpd configuration file (vsftpd.conf) as writing is disabled by default.

Edit vsftpd.conf:

sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

If it isn’t in that location, try searching for it:

locate vsftpd.conf

In vsftpd.conf, search for the following line


Remove the # sign from this line.

Save file and exit. (Press CTRL + X, press Y and then press ENTER)

Now restart vsftpd service

sudo service vsftpd restart
