Does ISPconfig provide personal web space to the users? If so how do they use it?
Do you mean like http://www.somedomain.com/~web2_user ?
Yep that is exactly what I mean.
I can't seem to ftp in to a user account
You have to use the web2_user user name, not the e-mail address.
Also make sure that FTP is enabled for that web site.
I have FTP access turned on for this website and I tried to FTP in using my user name and password and this is what I got.
Connecting to: athena.savy2k.net
220 ProFTPD 1.3.1 Server (ProFTPD server) [::ffff:18.104.22.168]
331 Password required for web2_randy
530 Login incorrect.
Connection Failed: athena.savy2k.net
Thank you for your help
Did you try both active and passive mode in your FTP client?
I was having trouble with ftp too, but just activate shell access for the site and the user and use Winscp and sftp--more secure anyway, and I've never had a problem with it.
doesn't shell access allow user access to console (SSH) ?
They'll be able to poke around and see your directory structure.
If that's a problem for you, falko has the solution, as usual:
Yes I tried both active and Passive modes. I also tried turning on shell access (although I don't know how that would help) and I tried secure FTP. I still got the same error.
I am open to anything
You did enable FTP for that site?
Does athena.savy2k.net point to the right server?
Is /bin/false listed in /etc/shells?
You have to turn shell access on for the user also (for the sftp, not ftp)
I was just thinking--did you turn on ftp services at Management/Server/Services ? It should be on by default, but check and see--also you can see the status.
Yes I used both passive and active modes.
Falko, yes /bin/false is in /etc/shells
and yes athena.savy2k.net is the right server.
Which distribution are you using?
Falko, I apologize for taking so long getting back to you.
I am using Fedora 9. I followed the perfect server instructions you wrote. You did a nice job I want to add.
This FTP issue is the last problem I seem to be having. I look forward to getting it resolved.
And as always, I am grateful
