After trying to get vsftpd and mysql-pam to work without success, I decided to try pure-ftpd.
I had my host re-install Debian 5 and I have set everything up from that point.
I installed Apache 2.2, PHP 5, MySQL 5, and pure-ftp.
I followed http://www.howtoforge.com/pureftpd_m...irtual_hosting
but I am receive and connect failed when I try to connect with SmartFTP.
I found the syslog and it says
pure-ftpd-wrapper: error: cannot execute /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper: Permission denied
I read on the web there is a bug somewhere in the pure-ftpd-wrapper but I could not find it.
