anonymous ftp asking for username and password though there are none..


We have anonymous ftp so that people could download useful software's but then all of a sudden it's asking for username and password when it click on that click(link for ftp is present in the website)..

I feel it's coz of the ownership and permission as the owner is root but then I'm not bale to change the owner nor the permissions of the file though i log in as root...it says read-only file..cannot change permission..

Can anyone tell me what could have gone wrong?

well the question is about that..it's that m not able to change the ownership and permissions at all and username and password wasn't there b4... in logs it shows:

Code:
Nov 19 09:25:38 ftp kernel: hda: status error: status=0x7f { DriveReady DeviceFault SeekComplete DataRequest CorrectedError Index Error }
Nov 19 09:25:38 ftp kernel: hda: status error: status=0x7f { DriveReady DeviceFault SeekComplete DataRequest CorrectedError Index Error }
is it hardware error?

Looks like HW, check df cmd and mount cmd to see if eg its still mounted and r/w enabled.
You may also want to do a disk check http://linux.die.net/man/8/smartctl

Not sure which bit you're asking about but on my system
Code:
df

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb2             72570160   8946204  59937556  13% /
tmpfs                  3900740       328   3900412   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb1               516040     82052    407776  17% /boot
/dev/sda6            103216884  10292000  87681676  11% /var/lib/libvirt/images

mount

/dev/sdb2 on / type ext4 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,rootcontext="system_u:object_r:tmpfs_t:s0")
/dev/sdb1 on /boot type ext4 (rw)
/dev/sda6 on /var/lib/libvirt/images type ext4 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
As you can see df shows what partitions/disks are available and space. mount shows filesystem types and mount status eg (rw) for read/write.

I've never used smartctl, but I'm sure you can find examples through google.
