Can't login with user account (ftp)
 
Another problem now, didn't know if I should make a new post or use my last one but here goes anyway.

After creating a user for my newly created site, I cannot login with the user account (tested using ftp).

I notice that the record in isp_isp_user for the user I created has a blank user_passwort field.
Is this normal ?

I have tried changing the password but no luck

Please help !

Yes. For security reasons the passwords are only stored in /etc/shadow.

Have you checked the FTP checkbox for this website?

If yes, check your /etc/passwd file if the user has been created there by ISPConfig.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes FTP is enabled for the site (via the checkbox)

test:x:10007:10008:Test:/home/www/web8/user/test:/bin/false
another:x:10005:10008:Another Test:/home/www/web8:/bin/false

appear in the passwd file.

Passwords appear for both in the shadow file too.

Can you send emails with these users? Maybe you have a problem with FTP as already some others had in this forum (with Fedora Core 4).

In Uebimiau you have to use the email address as username. Did you do that?

linuxfast 15th September 2005 14:45

Yes I used the email addresses

Even more strange, I CAN login using web-ftp

Tried restarting ftp, tried rebooting, tried another ftp client.

can you post the output from the command:

netstat -tap

Maybe your FTP Daemon listens only on localhost. Have you installed an additional firewall?

falko 15th September 2005 14:55

What's the exact error message you get from Uebimiau?

Maybe this thread is related to your ftp problem: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=196

tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN 25663/proftpd: (acc


I guess that means listen on all interfaces ?
FTP client tries to connect but gets invalid username or password

Firewall, I am using Ispconfig firewall and definitely no others.
