Default ISPConfig 3 w/ ProFTPd

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server edition running on a freshly rebuilt Linode.

I have a fresh install of ISPconfig 3 and everything is working properly except for the FTP side of things.

I installed ProFTPd after the install of ISPConfig 3 and created FTP users using ISPConfig 3. It sees the the FTP server is up and running but the user creation doesn't seem to allow access to my server.

My errors in the ProFTPd log say:

Mar 09 13:46:01 vps.palmettocomputerservices.com proftpd[3841] li210-220.members.linode.com (::ffff:70.89.81.253[::ffff:70.89.81.253]): USER kitkit: no such user found from ::ffff:70.89.81.253 [::ffff:70.89.81.253] to ::ffff:173.255.200.220:21
Mar 09 13:46:01 vps.palmettocomputerservices.com proftpd[3841] li210-220.members.linode.com (::ffff:70.89.81.253[::ffff:70.89.81.253]): FTP session closed.

kitkit- the name of my user (I think... 'Client Name'+'Username I made'

vps.palmettocomputerservices.com- this should be the name of my domain

li210-220.members.linode.com- this is possibly the name of my domain listed somewhere and shouldn't be (at least not to my knowledge)

70.89.81.253- this is the IP address I am trying to access the server via Filezilla

173.255.200.220:21- this is the IP of my server


This is my ProFTPd.conf file... I changed the user and group to root/root and I changed the name of the server to be descriptive of my VPS... Is that right?

ISPConfig 3 does not support ProFTPd; you must use PureFTPd. Take a look at this guide: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...nx-ispconfig-3
