    I had troubles with proftpd on the server so nick installed pureftpd instead. Now recently pureftpd has gone nuts. It keeps on giving authentication failure for users even with their passwords correct.

    any ideas ??

    Anand, have you figured out the problem?

    I'm interested in switching to pureftpd, so if you could share your experiences with us that would be great :)

    I have the same problem. Installed pure-ftp via WHM and now none of the users passwords seem to be working (or at least some that I know of aren't).

    I think I'll just go and submit a support request via WHM.

    Hey,

    I was going to install Pure-ftpd, the advantages vs disadvantages make it seem worth installing.

    I guess I will wait now until the bugs are ironed out.

    Got the solution atleast works for me now.

    under pureftpd, the username of any ftp user is username@domain.com

    e.g

    ftp domain.com
    username: user@domain.com
    password: password

    Works fine on my server. Do let me know if it works for you.

    regards,

    Anand

    I'll try it out later on and post the result. Bit strange that you have to use the full username@someplace.com though. I always found that to be one of the big advantages of CPanel over Ensim, as the ftp software Ensim uses also needs the username@someplace.com as the username on shared IP accounts.

    EDIT: It works, now if I could only figure out how to change the main ftp account
    password. It doesn't seem to change when you change the CPanel password anymore.

    Try to run the script at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ftpupdate

    It helps.

    Which FTP server you are using ? proftpd / pureftpd ? I had got a mail earlier from cpanel support that only in pureftpd it was neccessary to use user@domain, proftpd worked without it. You can also try to upgrade ur cpanel to the latest build and then check if it works.

    maybe this is solution for you

    Hello,

    I try something and i got a solution for this error, follow this steps:

    If you are using proftpd, change to pure-ftpd in WHM.

    SSH to server and do this commands:

    killall proftpd
    /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd stop
    wget http://updates.cpanel.net/ftpservers/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd-1.0.12-26cpanel.i386.rpm
    rpm -e pure-ftpd-1.0.12-26cpanel
    rpm -ivh pure-ftpd-1.0.12-26cpanel.i386.rpm
    /scripts/ftpupdate

    If some virtual ftp account dont work, just delete it and make it again, will work well.

    I hope this help everybody in the same error condition.

    A work around is restarting the pure-ftpd using the /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

    In the same file you will find instructions how to do that.

    Take care
