Website users?

    I have recently removed a user from one of the websites hosted within ISPConfig because I had a problem accessing Web-FTP for the said user. I was thinking that if I removed the user and re-created them, that it would clear the FTP problem. When I tried to re-create the user it would not allow me. States the following:
    Code:
    The user with the name web2_ctp does already exist.
    Duplicate Email Address.
    A user with administrator rights does already exist for this site.
    
    I currently do not have any users created for this account. I also deleted the FTP directory in the users folder...

    How can I clear this?

    Thank you!

    I have sucessfully re-created the user. I still cannot access the FTP directory for this user within Web-FTP in ISPConfig. When I remove admin privileges from this user I can access everything fine. Is there a problem or can administrators not have FTP access through ISPConfig?

    There are no limits for WebFTP and amins in ISPConfig.

    With an external FTP client the Admin FTP account is working? Did you get any errors when you try to login with web ftp?

    Ok.

    Yes, FTP works on all accounts using an external client.

    When trying to login with Web-FTP, I can login fine as long as the particular user does not have admin rights for the web (through ISPCondig). When I try logging in w/admin rights, it hangs for a couple seconds then ends my ISPConfig session. No errors that I can find...

    Which FTP server do you use? Proftpd or Vsftpd?
    Is there anything in the logs?

    Proftpd (Debian 3.1 Perfect Setup).

    I found this in /var/log/daemon.log:

    The first session [416] is from a non-admin user logging in to web-ftp successfully.

    The second ftp session [449] is from my admin user logging in to web-ftp unsuccessfully. This is when it ends my ISPConfig session.

    The third ftp session is from an unknown source. Someone trying to get in I guess. Starting with the [449] there were a total of 150+ attempts. Is this common?

    Code:

    and on and on...
    
    Also there are many entries where a session opens and closes (about every 30 minutes). Is this correct?

    Furthermore, here are the corresponding entries from the auth.log for the two login attempts from web-ftp. It looks like the admin account does login successfully, but gets booted shortly after:
    Code:
    Dec 19 09:30:18 server1 proftpd: (pam_unix) session opened for user web2_ctp by (uid=0)
    Dec 19 09:30:18 server1 proftpd[416]: server1.strec.com (localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]) - USER web2_ctp: Login successful. 
    Dec 19 09:30:18 server1 proftpd: (pam_unix) session closed for user web2_ctp
    Dec 19 09:30:29 server1 proftpd: (pam_unix) session opened for user web2_admin by (uid=0)
    Dec 19 09:30:29 server1 proftpd[449]: server1.strec.com (localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]) - USER web2_admin: Login successful. 
    Dec 19 09:30:57 server1 proftpd: (pam_unix) session closed for user web2_admin
    Dec 19 09:39:01 server1 CRON[577]: (pam_unix) session opened for user root by (uid=0)
    Dec 19 09:39:01 server1 CRON[577]: (pam_unix) session closed for user root
    
    I also found something interesting. Due to the fact that I kept getting hit with from the unknown user, I decided to stop the proftpd service. I did so and confirmed that the user attemts ceased. I then started up the service and got this error:
    Code:
    
    server1:~# /etc/init.d/proftpd start
    Starting ProFTPD ftp daemon:  - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.50:21) already in use by "Debian"
    proftpd.

    Please make sure you're using the right username for login:

    Normally the usernames are something like web<id>_<name>, not Administrator or something like that.

    That is not me but someone else trying to get in--robot or something.

    If you look at what I posted from the auth.log file, you will see that I am trying to using the appropriate usernames (web2_ctp and web2_admin).

    I don't know if this is causing problems, but you have
    Code:
    Default[B]r[/B]oot ~
    and
    Code:
    Default[B]R[/B]oot ~
    in your /etc/proftpd.conf. The first one is wrong, so I'd remove it and restart Proftpd.

    This must be ISPConfig's monitoring script which tries to connect to your FTP server to see if it's still running. This is absolutely ok.

    I removed the first "Defaultroot ~", restarted proftpd, and tried it. It still kicks me out of ISPConfig...:confused:

    When I restarted proftpd it gave me the same error:
    Code:
    Starting ProFTPD ftp daemon:  - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.50:21) already in use by "Debian"
    proftpd.
    
    Do you think this is a problem?

    That was a good resource falko, but I tried everything within it and still no luck on clearing the message:
    Code:
    Starting ProFTPD ftp daemon:  - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.50:21) already in use by "Debian"
    proftpd.
    Again, FTP is running fine on the system, with the one exception that I cannot set a user with admin rights for one of my websites. I tried it on another two sites and admin worked fine through web-ftp.

    How can I check to see if VSFTPD is installed? I ran "locate vsftpd" and had one hit:
    Code:
    /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/vsftpd.conf.master

    Okay, I found that an error message was popping up for a VERY brief moment before it boots me out of ISPConfig (when trying to login to web-ftp one site 2 w/admin rights).

    I was able to capture a screenshot of it though:

    Do you have the latest version of ISPConfig installed?

    Yes I do.
    I installed it over the weekend...
