Please double check that the FTP username is identical with the user were you changed the password and that your ftp daemon is configured to authenticate against shadow or pam.
FTP username is identical with the user that had his password changed
HOW can i check that my ftp daemon is configured to authenticate against shadow or pam ?
I must add that it is a "normal and fresh" ispconfig install BUT i've changed the the User Prefix in ISP / Config from "web#_" to "null" (nothing).
Is this important ???
Thanx for your answer ! I barelly need it !
[Update] : the "new" password does not work at all with services (mail, ftp, ...) but it works to sign in ISPConfig panel ONLY ...
So : how may people change their password ???
