    Anyone know of a fix for this?

    User creates a ftp account successfually, then goes to login and the system wont let him in, even after i sync the ftp passwords!

    Account Created
    The FTP account \"icetest\" with password \"icetest\" was sucessfully created.

    ADD icetest:08mM7W1YsBXdo:670:686:iceworm:/home/iceworm/public_html/icetest:/bin/ftpsh


    heres my logs from when i tested it:

    Nov 22 02:39:01 wolf proftpd[28969]: wolf.thehideout.net
    (197-209-237-24-cable.anchorageak.net[24.237.209.197]) - no such user \'icetest\'

    Is the domain a name-based virtual host or is it bound to a unique IP? (Does it have unique entry in /etc/proftpd.conf) ?

    What are you /etc/proftpd and contained files looking like, permission wise? If those are out of whack (user/group/ incorrect, etc)... it can cause the error you reported.

    the domain in question is on the shared ip, i checked the proftpd.conf file, compared it with my other servers and everything seems correct

    tried again, same results, new user

    Nov 25 22:48:32 wolf proftpd[7371]: wolf.thehideout.net (124-214-237-24-cable.anchorageak.net[24.237.214.124]) - FTP session opened.
    Nov 25 22:48:33 wolf proftpd[7371]: wolf.thehideout.net (124-214-237-24-cable.anchorageak.net[24.237.214.124]) - no such user \'garytest\'


    xxxxxxxxxxxx
    Not sure if this will help, but i looked into the /etc/group file, and found garytest and it shows

    garytest:x:823:

    others in that file look like

    autosub:x:783:autosub

    <Nope, that didnt work, still cant get in>

    xxxxxxxxxxxx
    Update: I did find the user garytest in the /etc/proftpd/ and then in the main users file (iceworm)
    everything looks fine in it....

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....
    No PAM errors in /var/log/messages, anywhere, right? How do the root directory permissions on /web , or /home (or whatever your web(user) root is look?

    Does a new account (a primary FTP user for a new account) function?

    Something is messed......... library-wise probably.

    no other users have this problem, so i would think its a specific user problem rather then a server wide problem

    no pam errors

    Nov 22 02:39:01 wolf last message repeated 4 times[/quote:61460a15a9]i see similar errors all the time in the active system attack emails we recieve... but since we haven\'t had any complaints about it from our clients i thought maybe it was just some kind of bug, err.. maybe i should have investigated :eek: if you find out what causes this or where to look to fix it, please share it with the rest of us. thanks ;)
