Default Ftp

Hello, i am new in linux world, but i have followed the The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.5 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3], it seemed to me that everything installed fine, i followed the suggestions that were made even if the install wasn't working from the comments bellow... anyways I have an issue the the pureftpd and ispconfig 3.... using FileZilla, i am able to log in as root onto the server with ftp.... the minute i care a user on the ispconfig 3 for ftp... it does not work... it keeps saying authentication failed....

my though is that the directorys do not match for the username and passwords with pureftp/myphpadmin/ispconfig, am I on the right track? or way off please help

Thank you

Sorry that directory does not exist...

the thing is i have tried logging in as root and it did work...

I can not create users in ISPConfig 3, they do not authenticate...

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?
Is SELinux disabled?
Is this a physical server or a virtual machine?

--> yes i have tried both (its give me authentication error)

Is SELinux disabled?

--> yes it is disabled

Is this a physical server or a virtual machine?

It is a physical server...


to me it seems like the ISPconfig 3 and the pureftd are looking a different directory for username and password....

I am not sure how to check if the are looking at the same files... Thanks

Do you have any error messages that you can post, e.g. from your FTP client and your server logs?

sure thing....
this happens when i log in a root with ftp filezilla:

Status: Connecting to 555.555.555.555...
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "root@555.555.555.555" 22
Command: Pass: ********
Status: Connected to 555.555.555.555
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: pwd
Response: Current directory is: "/root"
Status: Directory listing successful

NOW!!!!

when creating a user in ISPConfig3 --- trying to connect with a user by just changing user name and password--->

Status: Connecting to 555.555.555.555...
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "user1@555.555.555.555" 22
Command: Pass: ********
Error: Authentication failed.
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server


when I check out show system log in ISPConfig 3 i get
Feb 2 14:20:01 server1 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
Feb 2 14:20:01 server1 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.

Did you mark that FTP account as active in ISPConfig?
Any errors in your auth log?

The auth log should be located in /var/log/.
