500 OOPS: cannot change directory


centos 6.2 x86+vsftpd

It’s a long time having not playing with centos and vsftpd,there is the call from the customer for help about the error msg:”vsftp 500 OOPS: cannot change directory” as trying to use the ftp service……

it may be done with the selinux…or firewall….

setsebool -P ftpd_disable_trans 1

“-P” means permanent and disable the selinux service

“service vsftpd restart” will kick away the problem.
