    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    I have tried it now with root permissions but it still doesn't work.

    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    The bug is still present. Does anybody have more information on it or a workaround?

    Also, could people please add "affects me too" in Launchpad if you experience the same?

    Fresh Ubuntu 13 install on Rackspace, probably also this bug?

    PAM audit_log_acct_message() failed: Operation not permitted

    Moved to server platforms, as there may be better help available there.

    The bug report on #9 has instructions on building a patched vsftpd deb and precompiled packages for i386 and x64.

    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    I also have the same problem. I can't connect to FTP server (vsftpd)
    First, I got this error (auth.log):
    Code:
    ubuntu vsftpd: PAM unable to dlopen(pam_smbpass.so): /lib/security/pam_smbpass.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    I already asked for help about that error on this forum.

    then I applied the advice given here:
    Code:
    In /etc/pam.d/common-auth and /etc/pam.d/common-password comment out the lines that have pam_smbpass.so in them.
    But now when I try to connect to the FTP server I get the same error the original poster gets (auth.log):

    Code:
    May 10 10:22:16 ubuntu vsftpd: PAM audit_log_acct_message() failed: Operation not permitted

    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    It works, I updated vsftpd with the package posted on launchpad and added "allow_writeable_chroot=YES" in /etc/vsftpd.conf
    Details here
