500 OOPS: chroot

vsftpd in user chroot mode. When logging in, you get:

500 OOPS: chroot


You have selinux enabled. In RedHat Enterprise 7.3, the selinux boolean ftp_home_dir was removed. So your choices are either:

  • disable selinux; or
  • grant ftpd full access to the system with
    # setsebool -P ftpd_full_access=1
Note that either solution opens you up to various kinds of hilarity.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
