Proftp no account created. ISPconfig start warnings
Hi all,

after a long time :o with ISPconfig I need some help with two points.

1. When I create FTP user (ISP Site->User & Email->new) with Administrator permission, the account is not created so I cann't log on ftp. While I have anonymous directives in proftpd.conf the anonymous ftp works well.

I am using CentOS 5.2, my proftpd.conf:
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
ServerType standalone
DefaultServer on
Port 21
UseIPv6 off
Umask 027
MaxInstances 30
User nobody
Group nobody
DefaultRoot ~
IdentLookups off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
AuthOrder mod_auth_file.c
AuthUserFile /etc/proftpd.passwd
AuthGroupFile /etc/
RequireValidShell off
PersistentPasswd off
AuthPAMConfig off
AllowOverwrite on
Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf

2. while restarting or starting ISPconfig, I get this warnings in messages:
17.12.2008 - 10:55:41 => WARN - WARNING: could not open file

17.12.2008 - 10:56:20 => WARN - /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/classes/ispconfig_system.lib.php, Line 728: WARNING: could not /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit/bastille-firewall restart &> /dev/null

I don't think this two hang together. The second one seems like bad symlink, but where is this configuret?

Thanks for your answers...

Looks as if your ispconfig is not installed properly. Did you install the ispconfig sql dump manually or was it installed by the ispconfig installer automatically?

It was installed by ispconfig installer. Does your answer appears for second point? The warnings started to be showen after I made changes in default configuration of E-mails (I added right location ov virtusertabs). But maybe there were more than this change.

What exactly did you change?

jackoob 17th December 2008 12:45

Server: Domain, IP address
Web: Conf.dir, document root
E-mail: virtuser file, sendmail cw, maildir switched on
DNS: named.conf, Zonefile

Quit a lot but I think that all of them had a bad value ...

ok, I tried to install ispconfig from the scratch and the warnings disappeard.

But still it is impossible to create Proftpd user account.

Do you get any errors when you try to log in? What's in your logs?

Hi Falko,
