How to enable BOTH virtual & local vsftpd logins with PAM?
I am using vsftpd. I currently have a problem where I can use virtual logins OR local logins, but not BOTH concurrently. If i allow local logins to work, then i lose virtual login functionality, and vise versa. The reason for this is becuase of my PAM configs. I would love to know how to create a PAM config that would allow both types of logins...
Here is the PAM config which allows for LOCAL user logins:
I did try combining both configs into one, but then EVERY user fails authentication for the obvious reason that: A. if you are local user, you will not be listed in the database containing virtual users, and B. if you are a virtual user, you will not have a LOCAL login account on the system.
