I have followed so many tutorials now and gone through similar ways of getting around this problem but alas to no success.

I have a pureftpd server running which I can log into using a standard user account. It works fine for that. But I now want to use virtual accounts as it put it to add multiple users but keep my system clean. So I'm looking at virtual users just for Pureftpd

I have added several users and followed all the tutorials I could find to turn off PAM and UNIX authentication, adding the correct shell to /etc/shell and so forth. I use Filezilla to log into the server when I use a virtual user it always says username OK but password fails Authentication.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why and it is getting frustrating to say the least. Is there anyone out there that could help?

Let me know if you need any print outs off config files etc.
