Hi,

all of the sudden my user not able to ftp into their account.

I tried to use /scripts/ftpup --force to reinstall the ftp.


But i got the following error:

Failed to download
http://diff.cpanel.net/ftpinstall/pure-ftpd//redhat/9/pure-ftpd-1.0.20-17.tls.i386.rpm

Currently,

RedHat 9 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

Please advise.

I would suggest you to install Ftp server manually on your server. As its not that all difficult to install Ftp manually and it requires only few commands and little changes in ftp configuration file as per your requirements.

if i am successful in installing ftp manually...
how can i link to cpanel ? so that when user create ftp account via cpanel or change password via cpanel... it will reflect to the manually installed ftp?

I guess thats little difficult to link manually installed Ftp with cPanel. You need to seek some experts opinion on it. But if you still need steps to install Pure-Ftp manually, I can forward you that.

Sorry "seahorse" for not helping you throughout. :(

You mean pureftp or proftpd is installed fine.. But the users are not able to ftp ?
If that is the case it is worth checking the shell and try changing it and see if that makes any difference.

Have you tried switching the ftp program from one to the other and then testing?

I have the same problem. Old accounts work just fine but new accounts cannot login.

I've tried every suggestion in the 4 or 5 threads that have reported this issue all the way back to last August. NOTHING seems to work at this point... :mad:

same problem

I fixed it using "Synchronize FTP Passwords" from WHM

duh!

but why is it not reflecting the password automatically? becasue I am testing with normal users not hosting users, in other words, users that I created manually using: adduser username, from the shell.

regards.

The password file for cpanel's FTP installs is not the same as the system password file. WHY? No idea. The password files are stored in /etc/proftpd/(acocuntname) so when you add an account outside of cpanel, like say from the commandline, it is only updating the system passwd file and the ftp daemon isn't going to be looking there for a password. That is the function of the 'sync ftp passwords' link in WHM.
