To Whom It May Concern:
I cannot access my web folders through FTP. This is upsetting, because I cannot upload my website.
I recently wiped my server clean and installed ISPConfig3 fresh. ISPConfig3 is a bit different than ISPConfig2. In ISPConfig2 there was a web browser interface for FTP, though I could use an FTP client to connect too.
In this new ISPConfig3 all I was able to do is create a site for a client and then create an FTP User. The only way I could see to connect to FTP was with a software like FireFTP, but I've had no luck. Trying to troubleshoot I discovered I can connect to ftp when connected to the server via ssh, but I cannot in any other fashion.
When I use the program Fire-ftp in Firefox I get this:
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 11:51. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
331 User kylekyle OK. Password required
PASS (password not shown)
230-User kylekyle has group access to: client1
230 OK. Current restricted directory is /
250 OK. Current directory is /
200 TYPE is now ASCII
This just repeats over and over and over again. If I try using SecureFX it gives me an error and "terminates abnormally".
I have pure-ftp installed.
As an aside I am really Linux illiterate. As I understand it ISPConfig3 is a program that provides a web browser interface that manages the myriad of softwares necessary to create a web server, mail server, SQL database etc. I would prefer not to have to ssh to my server and mess around with things, because I am always worried I will change something and then ISPConfig3 will not recognize it.
I cannot find a more straight forward way to host my own websites. I am just frustrated that I cannot learn how to fix these issues myself and therefore end up at these forums.
Anyways, any help anyone can provide is greatly appreciated.
