I don't know what else to do, reinstalling doesn't seems to change anything.

Please help,


pkill pure-ftpd
configure your /etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf .. already head
/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql start

and connect your server via FTP

here is what i did to fix , i was on process to migrate ispconfig 3 from old ubuntu12.04(HDD problem on XEN) to new ubuntu 12.04(openvz container).
I had copied the content from old server
(/usr/local/ispconfig/) to new server
which also contained the password of ispconfig(mysql user) in
(/usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/config.inc.php) file
at line 67 which looks similar to this =>

$conf['db_password'] = 'opieudjduejdkdjdiuae29fd51a763db';

i copied the password 'opieudjduejdkdjdiuae29fd51a763db' and replaced the ispconfig password in the

file (/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf) which looks similar to =>

MYSQLPassword opieudjduejdkdjdiuae29fd51a763db

then i restarted:-
/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart

and bamm!!! ftp connection worked !!
