    Looks like you didn't compile Postfix with the quota patch.

    Please check with
    Code:
    ls -l
    that you use the correct filenames. Filenames might be different, or you might be in the wrong directory.

    You must run
    Code:
    dpkg -i postfix_2.9.3-2~12.04.4_i386.deb postfix-mysql_2.9.3-2~12.04.4_i386.deb

    500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()

    I followed this guide to get VSFTPD setup on an Ubuntu 12.04 server:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-hosting-with-vsftpd-and-mysql-on-ubuntu-12.04

    I ran into a problem that many others are also running into. To get the error above "500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()" fixed, here is what needs to be done:

    Courtesy of Mark Hale from The Frontier Group:
    reference: http://www.benscobie.com/fixing-500...ith-writable-root-inside-chroot/#comment-4048

    After doing the above, I then added this to my vsftpd config (/etc/vsftpd.conf):
    Code:
    allow_writeable_chroot=YES
    Then I restarted the vsftpd service:
    Code:
    service vsftpd restart
    And that fixed the error for me.

    It seems like this should be added to the guide. The guide is great, but after following it exactly as it's written, I ran into the error above on Ubuntu 12.04. I haven't tried the guide on a different version of Ubuntu server so it may work just fine for some, but for 12.04, this was the missing step that solved my problem.

    Fixing Error: OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()

    Followed the tutorial here to set up vsftpd on Ubuntu Server 12.0.4.2 and got the "OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()" error. Followed these steps to remedy:
    1. Add
    Code:
    chroot_list_enable=yes
    chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list
    to /etc/vsftpd.conf

    2. Create a list of usernames
    Code:
    [I]username1[/I]
    [I]username2[/I]
    ...
    in /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list

    3. Restart vsftpd
    Code:
    sudo service vsftpd restart
    Hope this helps anyone else having the same issue.
