idd pure-pw useradd

But i think you propably forget to create a database

the command you need is pure-pw mkdb

it depends what kind of authentication system you use
i always use virtual users. In that case pure-pw mkdb is just fine.
You probably use pam authentication i guess

hmm
you must check out the configuration
--chrooteveryone
gives you the possibility to isolate them in their own folders.

to use the virtual users system you must have an option like this
-l puredb:/etc/pureftpd.pdb in your config.

here's my configuration that i used on my redhat box

pure-ftpd.conf is not found under /etc of Slackware Linux OS.
where is it? I copy one from pure-ftpd package.
how to modify it? when modified "NoAnonymous" variable from "no" to "yes", it takes no effect!


Thanks
