The user_list file is used by the 'userlist_enable' option to provide a list of denied users, unless 'userlist_deny' is set to NO then it means the opposite. This file is not where you create users, do it in the usual place - either local or virtual.
Well virtual-user.txt file isnt there at all....or is it that we need to create that ourselves?
And there are users along with their passwords in userlist file like the way we usually have in virtual-user.txt file.And i tried to ftp with those username and password and it worked. so i'm stuck with adding of new users now.
And userlist option in vsftpd.conf is as follows:
I'm not talking about the local user...ya for local user we can add by useradd..
I'm talking about the ftp users who are allowed to upload and have their own links in the web where the uploaded materials are..
Actually when i type that ftp address in web,it asks for password and only those users present in user_list are allowed to login there..
The other users added via useradd can login only through the terminal..
so i wanted to add new user to that user_list file and i even added to it,but i cant login with that username..so what should i do for it?actually if it's for virtual-users.txt,we use db_load ..... command so that the new user comes into play..
So i'm asking how should i do that with user_list file?
