Unable to login - Could not update ICEAuthority file
Please I really need your help and support.
I installed Fedora 11 and was trying to setup a Web server for pure LAMP development and wanted to port forward with router so that my webserver can be access from inter net.
Server installation was perfectly fine.
I was able to login from the user which I created during the installation.
Instead of auto get ip I assigned 192.168.1.100 and then I set a HTML Server port forward.
Where the problem started.
I wanted to configure few users on vsFTPd and I tell you truly there is no place on Google where some one has defined a descent way which any person can understand that we can add some users.
Somewhere I found that Linux normal users can also access ftp if the local_user directive is set YES which i did and I added 3 users.
I wanted that whenever user is connected by vsFTPd returned them /var/www/html directory. Where as vsFTPD was taking them to their home directory (respective to each user)
I was unable to find any way that I can configure vsFTPd to set one default directory path which take every user to www/html directory so that developers can deploy websites
I notice Gnome GUI offers each user a home directory path so I though why not I gave every new user and existing user /var/www/html as their home directory
which i did... and this is how my Server stop responding to any further login attempts.
FTP is still working fine if I left it open It let the ftp client to connect but Linux server is not allowing login by any user
It gives an error 'Could not update ICEAuthority file /var/www/html//.ICEauthority'
and when i click close then next message is :
'There is problem with the configuration server
(/usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)'
PLEASE TELL me is there any way i can undo? Is there any way i can go directly to shell and remove those users and re-add some new users in the default way - I believe if I can add one new user with default directory /home/user I will be able to login
After this is resolve still I will need to search how we can add FTP users and take them to the directory /var/www/html
Thanks for reading.
