This question already has an answer here:
I've Wordpress sites hosted in Rackspace server. I'm able able to connect to the server via ssh through port 22. But when i try to connect to the server via FTP through port 21, i'm getting error
Response: 500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()
Error:Could not connect to server
I've opened port 21 inside the server. The site is hosted in RACKSPACE Server with Ubuntu 14.04
Installed vsftp in the server. And i'm using root user credentials for the FTP connection.
I even tried creating a new user for the same. But i'm getting the same error.
I used Filezila to connect to the server.Do i need to configure anything else in the server.
