I have trouble login to a centos box using root, password is correct, I suspect it's a file permission issue, how do I resolve this?
Response: 220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
Command: USER root
Response: 530 Permission denied.
Delete root from "/etc/vsftpd/ftpusers" and set "local_enable=YES".

You should remove root from /etc/ftpusers if you really need to login to FTP using root account. It is extremely dangerous since FTP passwords are transferred in cleartext.
