Until this morning all sites could be accessed via proFTP with a config file that has worked for several years.

This morning, one of the sites no longer allows login.

I get the 220 ProFTPD but then it dies before giving the 331 Password required.

220 ProFTPD 1.3.5 Server (ftp.mysite.com) [::ffff:123.456.789.234]
---> long pays here before returning information below <----
421 Service not available, remote server timed out. Connection closed.

ftp: Login failed

ftp>​


All remaining sites work as they used to. No changes made to any configurations other than what cPanel might be doing in the background.

I looked in /var/log/secure and see the following repeated a lot:

Apr 20 10:11:10 srv05 proftpd: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_listfile.so): /lib/security/pam_listfile.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Apr 20 10:11:10 srv05 proftpd: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_listfile.so
Apr 20 10:11:10 srv05 proftpd: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_pwdb.so): /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Apr 20 10:11:10 srv05 proftpd: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so

In /lib/security/ there is no file "pam_pwdb.so"

Any ideas of what might be going on?

so in proftpd.conf I reordered the domains.

For example: It used to be
<global> setting
<virtual domain 1>
<virtual domain 2>
<virtual domain 3>
etc.
I moved the virtual domains around while trouble shooting:
<global> setting
<virtual domain 3>
<virtual domain 2>
<virtual domain 1>
And now I can once again log back into all the domains. WTF ???

No other changes made.

Hello,

Does the issue persist if you change back the configuration file to it's original state? For instance, is it possible the issue was resolved before making that change or by restarting ProFTPd?

Thank you.
