I followed the tutorial:

But instead of centos 6.2 I have 6.3.

I also had to make a few changes for folowing reasons:

I have a /ierp/www/ierp folder wich has a "ln -s /ierp/www/ierp /var/www/html"
Becouse this will be my webroot

I want one user to have ftp access to /ierp/www
So in mysql database I have /ierp/www as homedir for that user.

mysql is also moved to /ierp/mysql and my socket is set to
MYSQLSocket /ierp/mysql/mysql.sock

mysql works fine after the replace (Owncloud is working on this server)

I also changed the bind parameter,21 to,10021
I listen on port 10021.
(And I opened this port in the firewall ofcource)

Now when I connect to the ftp server
and I loggin with the username and password wich I created in the database.
It will login but I gives me the error that It can't open folderlist (this could be a bad translation of "Kan de mappenlijst niet openen")

I changed rights on the www folder like this:

groupadd ierp
usermod -a -G ierp apache
usermod -a -G ierp ftpuser
chown apache:ierp /ierp/www/ierp

Same result.

What did I do wrong?

Issue solved.

I forgot that it is passive FTP. So I opened the port range 30000:50000 and uncommented the passive port range in the config file. Now it all works!
