    Hi everybody,
    probability I've found a bug in proftpd.

    If I set a password langer ther 8 character with ISPconfig proftpd anthentication will ignore all character alfer the first 8.

    How can I configure proftpd to enable password lenght support more then 8 character?

    Any ideas?

    Thats neither a bug in proftpd nor in ISPConfig. The normal crypt algorithm in Linux supports only 8 characters. If you need longer passwords, you will have to switch to crypt-md5. You can set the encryption method for the passwords in the file.
