    i had to reinstall my server (due to ispconfig no longer compiling ... seems it really was an error somewhere else, the reinstall helped)

    now i put everything back on, everything seems to work except ftp.

    can you give me some details about how vsftpd is supposed to be configured and doing auth ? if i start the service manually (via inet.d script) auth fails ...

    there is probably a conig file i didn't put back in place or so

    thanks in advance

    You must vsftpd to authenticate against pam or shadow. But I recommend to use proftpd instaed of vsftpd.
