vsftpd virtual user setup


Hi Guys,

I'm trying to set up a virtual user environment with vsftpd. I went through the examples given with the source in EXAMPLES/VIRTUAL_USERS, I even used the exact files, they use. Still the problem:

the ftp-server seems to only accept users (defined in my db) that also exist on the machine. Those are correctly mapped to the guest-account.

What am I missing here? Thanx for helping, Steave.

tried around some:

even if I remove the vsftp_login.db file logins work fine. also if I remove the service-descriptions in /etc/pam.d/

that is /etc/pam.d/ftp

logins still work great for users on my system. I am _very_ confused. please help.

Steave.

Some kind of a solution for those searching around:

I found out, that my pam headers weren't installed (or in the wrong place) After fixing this, I got pam authentication working.

I still stumbled into the problem that pam was not able to read the .db file I created as described. Maybe my install of berkeley db is messed up?

Hope this helps someone out there Greets, Steave.
