Default Pure-FTP needs additional setup for ISPconfig3

Then check if the ftp user directory exists ( /var/www/yourdomain.tld/ ).
I also followed the tutorial for ISPconfig3 and read the manual, but could not get ftp to work. Pure-FTP works on my system after following the following howtoforge tutorial

I can login to a newly created ftp account with filezilla or from the commandline with no problems.

I think that maybe pure-ftp's mysql config file needs to be setup to use the ftp-users table from dbispconfig (ispconfig's mysql database). Also the user and group ID's for pure-ftp maybe should be set to ispconfig.

I checked the ftp_users table in dbispconfig and it has an entry added for an ftp user associated with a client and webpage. The website directories are created by ispconfig and the ispconfig ftpuser is setup with www/cleints/cleint1... however when logging on using ftp credentials created through ispconfig nothing works. Manually creating pure-ftp credentials without the use of ispconfig is a pain in the arsch but it works. I check that database table's data and it is populated and works for logging in. hmmm i'm thinking that i might change the pureftp_mysql.conf file to read from the dbispconfig database ..what the heck
