    Look for errors in the /var/log/messages file.

    Good luck,

    Checked it just now but couldn't see any error or warning message.

    Look for a vsftpd specific log file, perhaps /var/log/vsftpd.log.

    Maybe apparmor is in the way?

    Try this
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/boot.apparmor stop
    sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
    Good luck,

    Couldn't find vsftpd.log even search from / by root user. Seems vsftpd.log is not created.

    No improvement. Same failed message after running sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart.

    Maybe you should post your vsftpd.conf so that someone can look at it.
