CreateHomeDir doesn't work with my Pure-FTP install
I've followed the Debian Lenny howto and I can't get auto creation of home directories to work. This is actually an old problem but I need to get it resolved as it's never worked for me in any Debian from Sarge - Squeeze!
The user in the MYSQL database is say /ftp/directory with ftpuser:ftpgroup as UID:GID
The /ftp directory is owned by ftpuser:ftpgroup
If /ftp/directory doesn't exist, the login fails with:
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 17:32. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Name (184.108.40.206:root): exampleuser
331 User exampleuser OK. Password required
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
No control connection for command: No such file or directory
If I create the directory it works fine assuming I put the right permissions on the directory.
root@vs:/# cat /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/CreateHomeDir
The FTP server is inside an openvz virtual container but even installs not within the virtual container don't work either for me. Everything else works fine, for example chroot.
How can I debug why the server won't create directories? Does it need certain commands available for example?
This is what syslog says:
Jan 31 17:30:28 vs pure-ftpd: (?@) [ERROR] Home directory not available - aborting
