    I recently upgraded the ISPCONFIG version on an Ubuntu 14.04 server from 3.0.5p to 3.1.
    All the FTP users began getting "550 Can't change directory to / Permission denied" errors when trying to access ftp. I finally decided to disable VIRTUALCHROOT in /etc/default/pure-ftpd-common to make it work. Does anyone have any idea why it's failing?
    /var/log/syslog shows:
    Code:

    I have not seen that issue yet on a server.
