pure ftpd running - can't login


Hi all,

On Suse Linux10 I have installed Apache and pure_ftpd using YaSt in order to use for local testing.

Problem: logged into machine as root, get as far as the line that asks for 'Password' but then the cursor won't respond

Hi,

You need to set permissions.

Did you read the docs? A 'cool solution' can be found here:
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/11418.html

Its for the pro version of SuSe, but that doesent make any difference

Oh, and by the way: Dont ever login to your ftp as root. That is considered a major securityrisc.

Sincerely, Jørgen

Things seem so much better this morning!

All is working well - just a few more tweeks with permissions & it's there

Thanks again, Simon
