    I need a little help
    i just want to give access to a user to a folder to share some files
    using proftpd
    If i try to add a user in ispconfig and set the directory to /home/user
    i get the error
    Response: 500 ?
    Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
    do you know why ?

    and the user is "defaultuser" not just user but this is less important.

    in the log i also spot this : Response: 230 OK. Current restricted directory is /
    btw there is no firewall on the system

    i just found out
    that i can upload files
    but i can not see anything on the server

    I uploaded a file and it shows up in /home/user
    but when i log in via FTP the directory is empty
    and again the error
    Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

    i think the question is how shoud i chown the directory ?

    resolved de problem chmod -R 777 /home/user :)
    me stupid
    maybe somebody can help me to rename the user from " defaultuser" to just "user"

    Later edit

    Resolved the problem by deleting the FTP User prefix from the Interface Config

    i know this is a old thread, but.
    i was facing a lot of troubles and solved them thanks to old threads.

    personally, i do not think changing permission is the best answer
    and less disabling firewall.

    trying to force an ACTIVE MODE connection in your FTP CLIENT, passive mode may change the communication port, then the firewall denies it
