I'm having problems getting FTP to work with ISPConfig 3. Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS ISPConfig 18.104.22.168p9 Using https://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-...2-php-mysql-pureftpd-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3 I think the problem has happened because I re-installed pure-ftpd after I installed ISPConfig, but basically I cannot connect by FTP either remotely or locally. The pure-ftpd syslog shows the following error when trying to connect: Here is what I don't get: 1. There is no MySQL pure-ftpd database, and the guide above does not include a section on setting that up. Is that because the setup of ISPConfig does that automatically WHEN pure-ftpd is already installed? - or is that because the dbispconfig database is somehow used instead? 2. The /etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf file contains (literally) the lines "MYSQLUser root" and "MYSQLPassword password" which clearly can't be used for anything. I presume removing ISPConfig and starting all over again would probably fix it, but I would really like to avoid that.
