Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently migrated from Apache on shared server to nginx on a VPS. I installed and configured vsftp in a manner that whenever I add a new user on server, its accessible by ftp.

Now to problem is that whenever i try to upload or delete a file, connection either times out or it says "permission denied". It works only when i keep the permissions to 777 which I think is not recommended.

Please provide a detailed explanation with possible solution.
