ok then how do i figure out what the password for my newly created user is?
i just made a user called joe (to test this FTP thing out) and this is what it says:
joe:!!:11887:0:99999:7:::

what the heck does that mean

The password hasn't been set for that user yet.
Run the command 'passwd joe' to set the password for the user joe.

Probably not necessary but might make life easier for you. Usually it's pretty standard for a perl script to have the first line as #!/usr/bin/perl

So if you don't want to modify every perl script you use and don't want to further break anything by changing the perl install. You could make a simple link to the perl5.6.1 executable.
Just run something like:

ln -s /usr/bin/perl5.6.1 /usr/bin/perl

that's how it's setup actually. i NEED to change that shebang line, as soon as i change it back to /usr/bin/perl it says "Internal Server Error" and the apache log says "script headers ended early", not worded exactly like that but it has that message behind it.

I did that but I don't know how to avoid this ftp users logging in (through telnet, for example).

What I want to do is to have some users that can ONLY access ftp.

I tried to assign shells like /dev/null to the user but it avoided logging both ftp and telnet.

thank you for your help
