500 OOPS: cannot read config file: vsftpd_v1.conf

I placed vsftpd_v1.conf into /etc and I am logged in as root. but ?I am getting this error

You don’t have to do that, refer the documentation

I change permission of vsftpd_v1 to executable but it shows that ( see run_as _launching… option).

Something else needs to be done too… Find it on the forum itself

use sudo nano <file_name> to read the file
