    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    Hi slapper,

    Some users reported me that the useradd command creates sometimes 530 error because of the password, so i advice you to re-create the users using the GUI tools (system > administration > user & group), you could try also this command it worked for some users :
    Code:
    sudo passwd userftp
    and then type the password you want to set for userftp again and do the same for your other user, it will just re-create the password.

    However when i have a look in your proftpd.conf file there is a problem, do you really want 2 different users for your ftp server ? if yes you should modify those lines like that :
    Code:
    # Choose here the user alias you want !!!!
    UserAlias user1 userftp
    UserAlias user2 student
    ...
    ..
    .
    #VALID LOGINS
    <Limit LOGIN>
    AllowUser userftp
    AllowUser student
    DenyALL
    </Limit>
    Why useralias ?
    I use useralias in my guide because this tip prevents telnet access to your FTP server and therefore increase the security of your server.
    So you always use the alias name to login your server even if the users is called userftp.

    Feel free to require more details/help

    The 530 error could also come from right problems for directories FTP-shared, FTP-shared/download and FTP-shared/upload. So check that the rights for those directories are good.

    I tried installing. Get this message after editing the proftpd.conf file

    ProFTPd warning: cannot start neither in standalone nor in inetd/xinetd mode. Ch eck your configuration.

    Any suggestions on what I may have done wrong? I am logged in as root, and did follow directions.

    Thanks,

    Try to re-install proftpd and/or post your proftpd.conf file in your next post, however this could come from the ServerType line in the proftpd.conf file :
    Code:
    ServerType 			standalone
    You should have this line in your proftpd.conf file.

    ok, change :
    Code:
    ServerType inetd
    by
    Code:
    ServerType standalone
    And it should be good.

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    Frodon, Great that worked. I am trying to install the GUI now. Where do I need to edit the .bashrc file. Where should I enter that path with ProfFtpd?


    Then add these lines in your .bashrc (it's in your home directory : gedit /home/username/.bashrc) file in order to specify what is the ProftpTools directory path, YOU MUST REMOVE THE "/" CHARACTER at the end of the path. I give you an exemple if your ProftpTools directory is in your home directory :

    Thanks so much for your help.

    To open the .bashrc file :
    Code:
    cd
    gedit .bashrc
    When the file is opened add the lines in like the guide says, for exemple if your PtftpdTools directory is in your home directory the lines to add would be :
    Code:
    ProftpTools_dir=/home/splendid/ProftpTools-v1.0.1
    export ProftpTools_dir
    I know it's not a really elegant way to install a script, but that's the best solution i found to set my script quickly. If i get time i will try to find an easier way than editing the .bashrc.
