I have pure-ftpd running. PAM is enabled cat /etc/pure-ftpd/auth/70pam -> yes.
This system was setup by someone else, I am just trying to add more users to allow for ftp access. There are several old users that can connect to the machine, but new users can't connect.
i add users via
pure-pw useradd uname -f /etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.passwd -u uname -g uname -d /home/uname
update the db and restart the daemon.
the user is present when I list the db pure-pw list and also the user is present in the system /etc/passwd /etc/shadow. The passwords are the same as well. however, there are noone of the old users listed that can connect to the system.
When i try and log in this is what I get...
Connected to localhost.
