    so for anonymous users they'll have their directory for exemple /home/anon
    and for local they can have acces to their directory and /home/anon at the same time?
    Another question
    how the ftp server will now if it's an anon or local user who want to have connection?
    and thank you for the answer

    If you use chrroting in the vsftpd configuration, then the system users cannot leave their home directories, which means they don't have access to /home/anon. You can switch chrooting off, but that's a big security risk as your FTP users will then be able to browse the whole server.
    It knows it from the login name that your users use.
