I could not get vsftpd to start; kept getting the "vsftpd Dead Subsys 
Locked" error.  On doing a Google search, I came across a fix (lost the 
site unfortunately) and as I recall, it has something to do with copying 
a file and having the incorrect SElinux settings (I have SElinux disabled).

The fix was to do a fixfiles, relabel (commands that I have never used) 
or a touch of "/.autorelabel" and rebooting.

It worked, but I have no idea of what I did (my lack of in depth 
knowledge of Linux).
