vsftpd and virtual users


After following the how-to at www,markus-welsch.de for configuring vsftpd to use virtual users I get the following error from any client trying to connect.

220 (vsFTPd 1.2.0)
Name (attendance.its.swt.edu:none): course1
331 Please specify the password.
Password:
500 OOPS: missing value in config file for:
Login failed.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection


Here is /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf:


# =========================================================================
# base configuration
# -------------------------------------------------------------------------
anon_world_readable_only=NO
anonymous_enable=NO

# =========================================================================

Here is /etc/pam.d/vsftpd:

#%PAM-1.0

anon_other_write_enable=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES
dirlist_enable=YES
download_enable=YES
local_root=/var/www/html/course1
write_enable=YES

The accounts.db file is in /etc/vsftpd. Im using Fedora Core1 and Berkeley DB 4.1.25 (included with Fedora). Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi JeffV,

no really good idea why it doesn't work.

Is there an error message in the vsftpd log?

Maybe there is no entry "write_enable=NO" in the vsftpd.conf file ?

Do you tried the configuration files from the example-configuration ?

(ftp://vsftpd.beasts.org/users/cevans.../VIRTUAL_USERS)


bye
Yoss

Resolved the problem. vsftpd doesn't like blank lines in the per-user configuration files.
