I pacman'd ProFTPD and configured it with Webmin for a virtual server. When I try to log in to the server it connects and accepts the username, but rejects the password I give. I know that the password I've entered is correct. Is there something I need to add to the configuration file to allow me to log in to the server as a local user, or something?
Does ProFTPd work with virtual users? If not (and I think it doesn't) you have to add every user you want to have access to the FTPd:
useradd -s /bin/false -g ftpgroup -d /ftphomedir -p password user
'-s /bin/false' means the user gets no shell, so he can't login to the box (except through FTP).
'-d /ftphomedir' should point to the FTP's rootdirectory, the directory users log into.
'-g ftpgroup' is the group FTP-users are in (if any).
A bus station is where a bus stops.
A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk I have a workstation.
