    FTP login problem

    I install ftp server (proftpd) but i can not login in it. It works a long time, but now when i upgrade to 8.04 version stop working. I search in forum but i can not find solution.

    This i can see in log:
    May 16 18:07:23 server proftpd[6416] mitjab.homelinux.net (cpe2-25-222.cable.triera.net[::ffff:82.149.25.222]): FTP session opened.
    May 16 18:07:23 server proftpd[6416] mitjab.homelinux.net (cpe2-25-222.cable.triera.net[::ffff:82.149.25.222]): USER mitjab (Login failed): Invalid shell: '/bin/bash'

    What is wrong? user mitjaba nd directory exist.

    Check if /bin/bash is listed in /etc/shells

    I believe there is something in the ubuntu release notes for 8.04 that says /bin/bash was replaced by /bin/dash, and you need to create a symbolic link for /bin/bash.

    Somebody is going to blast me for the syntax here because I suck at symbolic links, but it is something along the lines of:

    ln -s /bin/bash /bin/dash

    the order of the two paths may be reversed or I may be missing some parameters. If you make that link (successfully!) it should work.

    symbolic link already exist

    root@server:/home/mitjab# ln -s /bin/bash /bin/dash
    ln: creating symbolic link `/bin/dash': File exists


    Check if /bin/bash is listed in /etc/shells

    i add /bin/bash in /etc/shells and now working.

    thx boath for help!
