PUREFTPD Setting up!
Hello fellows! one more problem, yesterday I set my ftpd server after this tuturial
It seems to be all ok, but when I try to connect through ftp clietn (Filezilla), I'm getting the error:
530 login authentification failed,
It seems the problem is in password... cause the previous status line says:
331 User slash OK. Password required
530 login authentification failed

But the password is ok.. I reentered it again in phpmyadmin with the MD5 encryption.. please help me to solve this problem. Thx!

Are there any errors in your logs?
Is this a physical server or a virtual machine? If it's a virtual machine, what virtualization technique (OpenVZ/Virtuozzo, Xen, KVM, VMware, etc.) do you use?

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd restart
