I am looking for the best way to configure passive FTP on using VSFTPD on Ubuntu 12.10 + Nginx. My goal is to enable Wordpress to update plugins and write files.

To my knowledge a default install with support for home directories should be enough, but you could try
this approach: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/ssh-sftp-updater-support

In this case you do not have to install an ftp server i think.
