You can correct this problem by doing the following in the FTP configuration file.

vi /etc/vsftpd.conf

Now, the following lines will be commented, uncomment them.

local_enable=YES    – this lets the local users login via FTP
write_enable=YES   – this lets the users upload files

Save and quit the file.

/etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
