    I'm running Centos 4.4 X64. After installing IPSconfig, my old ftp users are gone. I can't login to my old accounts for filetranfer etc. I was running proftpd (and still because of ISPconfig).

    Does anybody know how to restore that??

    Thanks so far!

    I don't know.

    But here's how I added my users in the old situation.

    I installed Centos 4.4
    I used ussadd and pwusr to define a new user. They are stored in /etc/passwd (I checked it). Also home is defined there. The line looks like this:

    For example the user was Cod2server ... in /home there was a map called cod2server. Via FTP I could log into home/cod2server/ and update my files.

    I still can logon to Putty with the old accounts, just not in FTP....

    Yes I know.. I'm a noob... :(

    So your old users are still in /etc/passwd and also /etc/shadow?

    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    , and what's in /etc/proftpd.conf?
