10 Add LDAP Attributes And Values

10.1 Add LDAP Attributes And Values For Existing Mail Users

Use phpLDAPadmin or other tools to add sample LDAP attributes and values for existing mail users.

Attribute Name Value
objectClass PureFTPdUser
FTPStatus enabled
FTPQuotaFiles 50
FTPQuotaMBytes 10
FTPDownloadBandwidth 50
FTPUploadBandwidth 50
FTPDownloadRatio 5
FTPUploadRatio 1
FTPHomeDir /home/ftp/example.com/username/

Log into phpLDAPadmin:

Find the existing mail user www@example.com:

Add Object Class for the user www@example.com:

Select the Object Class PureFTPdUser:

The result:

Add PureFTPdUser attribute:

All the attributes about PureFTPdUser:

Enable FTP status:

Add all the PureFTP attributes according to the below form:

 

10.2 Add LDAP Attributes And Values For New Users

You can use the iredmail tools to quickly create a new user including the PureFTP attributes and values.

cd iRedMail-0.5.1/tools
vi create_mail_user_OpenLDAP.sh

LDAP_SUFFIX="dc=example,dc=com" # <- Change the LDAP suffix 
BINDPW='passwd' # <- The user cn=manager,dc=example,dc=com password
PUREFTPD_INTEGRATION='YES' # <- Change form NO to YES,enable the pureftp inteegration

Run the script to create the users user1 and user2. By default, the default password is same as the user name.

bash create_mail_user_OpenLDAP.sh example.com user1 user2


adding new entry "ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "ou=Groups,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "ou=Aliases,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "mail=user1@example.com,ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"

adding new entry "mail=user2@example.com,ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"

 

11 Configure iptables

By default the ports 20 and 21 are not open. If you use the ftp client test, you need open the ports 20 and 21.

vi /etc/default/iptables

# http/https, smtp/smtps, pop3/pop3s, imap/imaps, ssh
-A INPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dport 80,443,25,465,110,995,143,993,587,465,22,20,21 -j ACCEPT # <-- Add 20 21 

Restart the iptables service.

/etc/init.d/iptables restart

 

12 Testing

You can use a Windows FTP client or the Linux ftp client lftp for testing.

lftp localhost
lftp localhost:~> debug 4
lftp localhost:~> login user1@example.com user1 # <-- input the username and password
lftp user1@example.com@localhost:~> ls

13 Troubleshooting

Enable verbose logging in pure-ftpd:

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/VerboseLog

vi /etc/syslog.conf

ftp.*                       -/var/log/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.log # <-- Add entry

Create the pureftpd.log file:

touch /var/log/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.log

Enable ldap logging:

vi /etc/ldap/slapd.conf

loglevel    256 # <-- change form 0 to 256  

Restart pure-ftpd, syslog, and openldap:

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-ldap restart
/etc/init.d/sysklogd restart
/etc/init.d/slapd restart

Monitor /var/log/pureftpd.log and /var/log/openldap.log for troubleshooting:
