    I used the adduser command to create a backup user on a server running WHM and pure-ftp. I can ssh into the server using the backup username and password but if I try to use FTP to connect using the same username and pass I get denied with the following error in ../log/messages.

    Code:
    Sep 28 18:57:49 xxx pure-ftpd: (?@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [xxxxxxx]


    On every other server I have done this on I didnt have this problem. Any ideas?

    /scripts/ftpupdate might help you. Not 100 % sure, but worth a try.
