View Full Version : Ubuntu 8.10 ProFTPD and ISPConfig Problems!

5th February 2009, 07:50
I currently am running Ubuntu 8.10 x64 bit Server Edition.

I have installed ISPConfig and ProFTPS.....from what I see I did everything correctly. (But then again it would be working if I did :))

Anyway the problem is when I go to my FTP it prompts me for the username and password, however no matter what I configure in ISPConfig for FTPUsers, nothing seems to let me login.

Bad username and password I'm assuming....I assume this because when I tried logging into my ubuntu username (richard)....It logs me directly into my home directory....and works perfectly.

So my question is, did I miss something stupid? Did I not google enought lol?

So basicaly my FTP works with all usernames in my linux box and sends them too there home directory, but a virtual user created by ISPConfig will never work for me?

Any suggestion? Thanks in advanced!

ISPConfig 3 does not support ProFTPd (yet), but instead relias on pureftpd. Take a look at the installation notes: http://www.ispconfig.org/docs/INSTALL_UBUNTU_8.04.txt
