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

During the setting up vsftpd(2.3.5-3) daemon in Debian Wheezy, I found the following error 500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot() when you try to open ftp connection to the server.This appears when chroot_local_user=YES option is enabled in /etc/vsftpd.conf.Many people had the same problem.This is BUG which is already reported.We can fix this problem with additional patch.

vim /etc/apt/sources.list

add
deb http://ftp.cyconet.org/debian wheezy-updates main non-free contrib

apt-get update


aptitude install -t wheezy-updates debian-cyconet-archive-keyring vsftpd

vim /etc/vsftpd.conf
add

allow_writeable_chroot=YES

service vsftpd restart
