Exclamation Cannot login to ftp!

hey there, im using ubuntu 6.06 and latest version (off the site) of ispconfig.

I installed the os using the perfect server setup guide or w/e.

The first installation, i had problems getting websites to work, but i changed www dirs and etc and got it working, all was well. But it seems at the same time i got it working, ftp access stopped working!

i uninstalled ISPConfig and reinstalled, got everything back to how it was before, and now this: Using proftp:

- cannot login to ftp, says username or password is incorrect.

- passwords ARE correct..

- tried username and web#_username as login

- can login as admin so server is running, but cannot login as users made by client making tool

help would be appreciated...

follow up on my own bit: the situation has changed a bit...

ok, so when you goto "make new site" and select "FTP Access" (make sure its checked) and save, ISPConfig is not making entries for regular ftp accesss for that user in proftp_ispconfig.conf . Just anonomys.

AND, if you make a new site with out checking the "FTP Access" box, when you goto view the sites details, its checked anyways. You cant uncheck it.

maybe somebody can help me now...

Did you activate the checkbox "Administrator"? This is needed to allow the user ftp access.

Also try to connect with the WebFTP Tool in ISPConfig. So you can see if it's a problem with proftp or ISPConfig in general.

Then something is wrong with your ISPConfig installation... Does the ISPConfig database exist, and are tables in them with records?

I've checked the database, It's there, I've even set access to 777 on the proftpd_ispconfig.conf

Is there some module needed for ISPConfig to create FTP accounts, For example, P.A.M?

Third time installing this software, It looks good & very useful..

I'm going to try on my Linux setup (Another PC) & I'll see if I can get it working... (btw, It's two people trying to figure this out)

I'll post asap...

UPDATE:

So I tried this on my machine (different PC)
I created a site with FTP access, tried to login as 'client' (the name), No luck there..

disabled FTP.. went back & just as before, It was ticked again <_<...
Am I missing something, both machines are running Xubuntu 6.06.. (Not as previously stated)

I'm confused.... been trying to figure this out for days... (3)

Default ftp login problem

I have the same issue. Cannot login using FTP (Ftp client or web-ftp). I've tried everything I can think of. I checked all the tables the information is there. The only solution I have found is to use SCP client to login over SSH.

Any ispconfig experts want to have a look and see if I missed something? Let me know.

What distro are you using?

We are both running Xubuntu 6.06... but if your having the same issue then it must be ether the distros or the ISPConfig itself..

Yeah SSH works perfectly... for us too.. I have to start VNC over SSH

What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /root/ispconfig
?
Can you post the /etc/passwd entry of a user that cannot log in?
What's in /etc/shells?

Default Platform info

The distro is Suse 10.1 x86_64
ISPCongif 2.2.1 <- correction ISPConfig 2.2.3 just checked

I am currently running some tests on another server to try and find the problem.
Falko - I'll check on those commands in a few minutes.

Update: I posted the information you requested its on the next page.
