So via Ubuntu11x, out of no where I can't write into any files via VSFTPD.

It doesn't make sense, nothings been changed; it's been working fine for about 6 months now. The only error code I get (i.e. making directory) is 550 operation failed.

Literally, nothing was changed with anything, it just flipped on it's own.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

How are the rights in the folder structure you are trying to change? – Bart De Vos Nov 4 '11 at 8:20

I figured out the issue, MongoDB ate up 100% of my memory. So the system had zero space for cache.

So I removed some old archives and wal-ah.
