I've got pureftpd running on Fedora 8. It works beautifully for the most part.
I'm having one issue where when I create a new user, and the user's home directory is not yet created, I get an error that the "Server Closed Connection" when I attempt to login with that user. The CreateHomeDir option is set to yes in the conf file. Logging in with users who have home directories works correctly.
I haven't been able to find any type of log file to indicate the error. I also do not have any problems uploading & deleting files for users whose home already exists, so that leads me to think that it's not a uid/gid problem.
Can someone point me in the right direction on log files that might indicate what is going on? It seems like not very much is logged in this software.
Also of note, I've installed the RPM version of pureftpd.
