Okay - I've spent most of the day on this and am relenting and bothering you guys:
I've installed ISPConfig2 on a new Linode and have is (mostly) configured. I followed the Perfect Server guide for Debian Lenny.
My issue is that I can't for the life of me get an ISPConfig user to be able to FTP in. Normal Linux users are able to FTP and SSH but I can't do either with the users I have created in ISPConfig. I have had to remove the user prefix in this instance (in the past I have left the web[WEBID]_ and I am wondering if this is part of the problem? Usually I used the prefix with the username and that's the login. I'm assuming that when you remove the prefix then they login with just their single username but that's not working.
I've re-installed and reconfigured proftp without any luck. The proftp log just shows a lot of opened and closed connections (which I'm assuming is all the authentication failures).
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
regards and thanks,
