    Shell users are created.
    Some can connect, recently created can't.

    The server was uggraded to squeeze 2 month ago.

    What can I verify ?

    Thanks !

    Which ISPConfig version do you use and with which ispconfig version were the ssh users created?

    ISPconfig version what I use :, for recent ssh user.

    ISPconfig version where the ssh users created (which can acces) : last user was created at the end of 2010.

    Please post the exact error messages that you get in /var/log/syslog when you try to login and post the line for the user that fails from /etc/passwd

    Did you run a ispconfig update afterwards where you choose to reconfigure services?

    I just update to, with reconfiguration of services, and finally a reboot.

    No line for connexion in syslog.
    /usr/sbin/jk_chrootsh and not /bin/bah in passwd.

    I correct, it is good.

    I remenber a problem with bash, but not what to do. Force bash by shell ? I think it is a bug in ispconfig, which shows bash as shell.

    I prefer to update squeeze and ispconfig when there is updates.

    But I think I have to write a log of actions.

    Thats no bug at all, ist a setting in the client limits if you want to run a cronjob with jailkit or not.

    Ok, but why jailkit blocks ssh access ?

    Jailkit does not block ssh access if its correctly installed. You should reinstall jailkit (latest jailkit version) and then run a ispconfig update where you select to reconfigure services. To test the new install, create a new website and then a new ssh user in that website as the jail is created only once when a new website is setup.

    I found that jailkit is missing.
    The first install of ispconfig was from OVH, with lenny.
    Perhaps a bad upgrade to squeeze ?

    I install jailkit :
    apt-get -y install build-essential autoconf automake1.9 libtool flex bison debhelper

    cd /tmp
    tar xvfz jailkit-2.14.tar.gz
    cd jailkit-2.14
    ./debian/rules binary
    cd ..
    dpkg -i jailkit_2.14-1_*.deb
    rm -rf jailkit-2.14*

    I'm waiting ispconfig to reconfigure.

    You can run the ispconfig update again by using the manual update instructions from the release notes.

    Ok, it works !

    Is it possible to jailkit users created before installing jailkit ?
