Few days ago my mysql broke down suddenly without any clear-to-determine reason (the sites content showed "Unable to connect to mysql database"). I managed finally (with few problems but still) to reinstall mysql and as far as database is concerned everything works fine. But since then, occured the problem with ftp. Service is working properly but my useres cannot login - they receive 530 error even though they type appropriate data (checked). Can you give me some tips, maybe how to simply start to deal with this issue? I must admit that before mentioned mysql crash everything was working properly. 2 things to add: 1. My apache is restarting aright but I get small warn: Code: NameVirtualHost *:443 has no VirtualHosts NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts 2. When i am restarting my proftpd the system shows me as follows: Code: root@xx:~# /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart Restarting ftp server: Running: /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-mysql-virtualchroot -l mysql :/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf -l pam -Y 1 -u 1000 -E -8 UTF-8 -O clf:/var/log/pu re-ftpd/transfer.log -B The service restarts good but I suppose that it is not the way the ordinary restart notice should look like?
