    Can anyone help me

    Non of my users are able to access ftp using their usernames and passwords

    eg.

    host: xxxxxxx.com port 21

    user: web24_admin

    pw: xxxxxxx

    we get a login invalid message

    user is listed in etc/passwd as:

    web24_admin:x:10124:10024::/var/www/web24:/bin/bash

    Thanks

    John

    1) Are you able to login with the web_ftp in ispconfig?
    2) Which linux distribution do you use?

    Please comment out the include line at the end of the proftpd.conf file, the one that oncludes the proftpd_ispconfig.conf and restart proftpd.

    Just for reference

    Since changing the conf file ispconfig is showing the ftp as 'offline'

    Thanks

    Hi Falko

    I created the suggested ftp file and that seems to have fixed the problem of logging in via filezilla.

    I am still however unable to use the web-ftp on ispconfig

    Any ideas?

    Thanks once again

    Do you see any error messages? What's in the logs?

    All I get is

    'could not connect as user web1_user'

    I have however since my last post been able to login with one user.

    I have 10 sites and am unable to access any of the web-ftp except one

    When I checked the passwd file in etc/passwd the user that is able to login in has bin/bash at the end of his line all the other users have bin/false? could this have something to do with the problem.

    Any help will be appreciated

    Thank-you

    John

    Is /bin/false listed in /etc/shells? If not, add it to that file.

    Can you post /etc/shells and one of the not-working users from /etc/passwd?

    /bin/sh
    /bin/bash
    /sbin/nologin
    /bin/tcsh
    /bin/csh

    /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/

    /etc/passwd

    And when you change /bin/false to /bin/bash for web9_john in /etc/passwd, that user can log in using FTP?
