    Hey all, first off I want to say this site rocks!

    I went through the SUSE 10.0 server setup, http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_10.0

    Followed all the steps got it running fairly well although I did run into a few snags...

    when i installed the system i have two accounts, root account and an account called matt, i was able to login via ftp with user name matt perfectly, and when i goto http://localhost/~matt/ i have my own public_html

    so i created another account called grant and even after restart proftpd i couldnt login with that user, im not sure if proftp is reading from passwd file i assume it does? but the http://localhost/~grant works fine, anyways i just set it up the way the tutorial said so im not really sure what im suppose to do on new users. maybe i am suppose to use PAM or something

    also postfix seems to be hanging on the escape characters '^]' line
    i have to break out of it after a few minutes, i went over and over i don't see what i've missed but any insight would be great full!

    again thanks for the great tutorials and help

    ok after surfing google i found that i was adding the users wrong..
    by adding them this way it seems to work well on proftpd

    useradd -d /home/USERNAME -m -g users -s /bin/bash USERNAME
    passwd USERNAME

    I'm not 100% one what all the triggers are dont but i think it means no bash shell for this user
