I have installed vsftpd on my Ubuntu 12.04 x32 I have set up vsftpd.conf and uncommented local_enable=YES and write_enable=YES and chroot_local_user=YES (both of them).
I had already installed apache server in /home/var/www/
so I did a chown root:root /var/www/
When I try to login with the root username and password to the ftp server. I get the error vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()
