    This thread is about this howto:

    I found the article interesting, so i had a go at it.
    everything goes smooth until _local_ users try to login... they can't.

    Is it not possible to use the server as both virtual and local or im misunderstanding something?

    The problem is that we've told PAM (in the file /etc/pam.d/vsftpd) to use the MySQL database to authenticate users instead of /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. So system users cannot authenticate anymore.
