I have created an ftp user under a client and that user is marked as active. When I try to connect via filezilla, I get the same error messages as posted earlier in this thread. I can however connect as root, even though root is present in ftpusers under /etc

Here is what pops up in the auth.log:

sshd[18060]: Invalid user **** from
sshd[18060]: Failed none for invalid user **** from port 53982 ssh2
sshd[18060]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): check pass; user unknown
sshd[18060]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=

So obviously the ftp does not recognize the user I created in ISPConfig, so the question is why not?
Please open a new thread.
