Pure-ftpd issues with ISPconfig?

    I just setup a server with the perfect server setup for centos 5.3.
    I had a slight issue getting pure-ftpd to run after isntalling it from yum, so I compiled it from source instead using --without-capabilities which got it to run.

    Now when I add an ftp account in ISPconfig it doesn't seem to add.
    I can manually add people using pure-pw.
    Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Looks as if you compiled pure-ftpd with the wrong settings. You have to compile it with mysql bindings so it connects to the mysql database, pure-pw is not suppoerted by ispconfig.

    hmm im pretty sure i compiled it with mysql bindings and a load of other ones just incase.
    i tried to edit the pureftpd-mysql conf file and the pureftpdconf file to make it use the mysql database, but haven't had any luck.

    how do i check if it has been setup correctly with mysql?

    1)( Mkae sure that your compiles version uses the eaxct same config file locations then the default install.
    2) Make sure that ispconfig is installed after pure-ftpd and not before pure-ftpd as the ftp server will not be configured otherwise.
