    Hi,
    Because this is my first post, first I want to say hi, and thanks to the developers of ISPConfig 3. I found it fairly easy to install, and get my sites up an running. I do have a few suggestions I might make in the appropriate forums, if they have not been made already.

    On to my issue. I have ISPConfig 3.0.2.2 installed on 2 different servers. I had to install pure-ftpd from source, compiling it without capabilities because I am running on a VPS. On server 2, my pure-ftpd works fine, users can log in, upload files etc. On my server 1. i can add ftp users, but they are unable to log in and do anything. All I can find in the logs is user not authorized. i have looked at the /etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf, and everything looks in order. i can connect to the db with the user name and password the ISPConfig configured in the file.

    ISPConfig 3.0.2.2
    ubuntu 10.04
    Pure-ftpd-mysql 1.0.24

    Any suggestions on where to start to fix the issue? i have removed and added users back, tried different ftp clients.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    cat /proc/user_beancounters
    ?

    Hi,

    I pasted it below.
    I did find an old thread that helped I think. Not sure why I didn't find it my first few searches. But I will explain a little more first. In my /etc/mysql/my.cnf I changed

    Code:
    #bind-address		= 127.0.0.1
    
    To
    Code:
    bind-address		= 208.115.226.189
    
    That is my server's IP address. It was the only way I could get remote access of MySQL to work from my server2.

    So, I think this is what caused my pure-ftpd issue.
    In my /etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf
    I changed
    Code:
    MYSQLServer     127.0.0.1
    
    To
    Code:
    MYSQLServer     localhost
    
    This seemed to get my pure-ftpd working, but then my postfix stopped working because it could not connect to the database.

    So I have changed the my.cnf file back to what it was, and my postfix is working, and my ftp is working.
    If I add websites and stuff from the Gui on server1 to server 2, it seems to take fine, so I am guessing my databases are talking okay. So, it seems all is fine after all for now.

    Does this sound right for a 2 server setup?


    Code:
