    I'm trying to connect by ip not by domain, I want to upload my websites before changing dns.

    I set up the client, then the site (and Ip), and the ftp user and pass.
    Then when I tried to connect I specified the Ip as address then username and pass, but no connection established... wrong pass

    I check /etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf and everything seems ok, I also removed pureFtpd, reinstalled it, and ispconfig as well, following perfect lenny etc etc

    I also manually replaced the password via phpmyadmin, and it doesn't work.

    Where's my fault?

    Have you tried active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

    And which are the error messages that you get in syslog when you try to login.

    I usually connect to ftp in passive mode, but thinking about It could be a client issue I tried to connect from different pc and os.

    The same problem happens also connecting directly from terminal inside the server ... ftp localhost...

    My log

    Is it a physical server or a virtual machine? If it's a virtual machine, which virtualization technology is being used (OpenVZ, Xen, KVM, VMware, etc.)?

    It's a vps on Xen and SAS drives, for that maybe I found also an error on /etc/mdadm . The package is installed but the folder doent's exist

    During the install (following your tutorial) I had the issue about quota but i resolved like the guy who commented the tutorial.

    I tried also the update to 3.0.1 but it did not work. Then i changed my mysql root password (maybe the | character in password is reserved, i tried everything in my rough knowledge :) ) and i did the update process again. The updadate failed again but with a different error.

    Now I told to the hoster ( to format and set up a fresh base lenny system.

    I set up ispconfig with lenny and vmware on my mac and it worked perfectly (mail and ftp for sure).

    Now I'm going to do it again with ispc 3.0.1 on my mac and on vps.
    I'll tell u the results, and really thank you for your precious time.

    You should not use control characters like |<>%$ยง for the mysql passwords as they get interpreted on the shell.
