Not sure what were permissions on /var/www as I removed this folder and create a symbolic link that point to /srv/d_vidy/www.
Next are the owner/permissions currently set on the relocated www folder.
/srv : drwxr-xr-x 3 root root
/srv/d_vidy : drwxrwxr-x 9 root admin
/srv/d_vidy/www : drwxrwxr-x 5 www-data www-data
/srv/d_vidy/www/clients : drwx------ 5 www-data www-data
/srv/d_vidy/www/clients/client5 : drwxr-xr-x 3 root root
/srv/d_vidy/www/clients/client5/web5 : drwxr-x--x 6 web5 client5
Are these owner/persmissions correct ?
I did try to connect with FTP with a wrong password and I get the following entry in messages logfile
Nov 30 12:39:27 vidy pure-ftpd: (?@zzzz) [INFO] New connection from zzzz
Nov 30 12:39:27 vidy pure-ftpd: (?@zzzz) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [zoroweb]
Nov 30 12:39:33 vidy pure-ftpd: (?@zzzz) [INFO] Logout.
So the authentication process is working right. But why when I give the correct password the ftp server responds with "Error: Could not connect to server" ?
Any other log files to check ?
Thanks for your help
