500 OOPS: cap_set_proc, vsftpd...

Hi Fawad,

I had the same problem. If the capability module isn't loaded, your
vsftpd session won't get beyond entering the ftp password. You can
check if  capability is loaded by entering the following string at the
terminal command prompt:

lsmod | sort | less

If capability doesn't appear in the list then type:

sudo modprobe capability

and that might solve your problem.

If capability does appear in the list I'm not sure what you should do.

Hope this helps,
