We recently switched our website domain name, which resulted in a different directory structure for our files to be placed. I have since tried to configure FTP users for the new domain location:
Now, what I would like to do is create a folder called "support":
this will be for our support personnel to upload files for customers/employees/etc.. I had this before the change. I originally thought that I could simply change the path for the users inside the passwd file, but for the ones I tried the FTP no longer worked.
So, I deleted the accounts and tried to add them back in:
user: test group: apache
I set test as the owner of the support folder, ran passwd and gave the user a password. However, when I attempt to connect via filezilla I am given a 530 Login Incorrect error.
Any ideas what could be the problem? I have tried the ftp logs (using ProFTPd) as well as adding Trace in the conf file to see what that might give me but nothing concrete thus far.
Thanks for the response. I have always had my FTP users as part of /etc/passwd. Is this not correct? I have not seen a way to generate FTP accounts for ProFTPd other than "adduser", which places them in /etc/passwd. I am still somewhat new to linux, but everything I have found points to doing it this way, and it worked previous to our domain switch.
