Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Everytime I try to login to my ftp server I get:
root@linux:~# ftp deooge.com
Connected to deooge.com.
220 ProFTPD 1.2.9 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation) [linux.deooge.com]
Name (deooge.com:root): joey
331 Password required for joey.
530 Login incorrect.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
I know that the password is correct. Why is it doing this and how can I fix it?????
i dont think he is logging in as root, looks like the user 'joey' to me...
If its simply a case that it is displaying login failed although it hasnt actually failed then i really couldnt even hazard a guess as to why.... but i can suggest a fix... in the config file, you coudl try these lines.. (global config)...
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories. If you do not
# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
Cool... Does the user account FTP exist? Are you actually running the standalone or starting it from inetd? is there anything of interest in the log?
You might want to get logging to a file like /var/log/proftpd.log, add these lines to your config before the anonymous section. I use 'level' warn, but debug would be better for now... (you might need to 'touch /var/log/proftpd.log')
