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\'
Nov 22 02:39:01 wolf last message repeated 4 times

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.
