vsftp not working on Fedora5


My previous server installation was Fedora4 and I installed vsftpd 2.0.3 and it is working as intended.

Recently I installed Fedora5 and I tried to install vsftpd 2.0.4. After installation, I cannot log in using the local user. However I was able to log in using anonymous. Then I tried to edit /etc/vsftpd.conf by commenting out the anonymous_enabld=YES and restart /etc/init.d/xinetd restart.
I still can log in using "ftp" as anonymous.

I removed the 2.0.4 and reinstalled with vsftpd 2.0.3 on Fedora5.
Same thing. I can't log in with local user while I can log in with "ftp" user.

Forget to add some info.
I have uncommented the line in the vsftpd.conf
local_enable=YES
It is not able to access by local users.



Please advise.

thanks and rgds,

It may be that your vsftpd is linked with PAM. Theres's some info on local users not being able to login at http://www.vsftpdrocks.org/faq/ which might be useful.

I tried reading the FAQ and found possible problem.

I have put the pam service in vsftpd.conf file as mentioned. But when I looked at the /etc/pam.d/vsftp file that I put in, there is a file (pam_pwdb.so) mentioned.
I can't find that file in /lib/security/ directory.
I compared with (Fedora 4) installation, which have. I only have one (Fedora 5) machine installed, so I can't say whether I missed something during my installation.

Is there any way to install / put the file? (I can't use the file on Fedora 4 because the pam versions looks like different.

#%PAM-1.0
auth required /lib/security/pam_listfile.so item=user sense=deny file=
/etc/ftpusers onerr=succeed
auth required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
auth required /lib/security/pam_shells.so
account required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
session required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so


Any help is appreciated.

rgds,

Does that mean that ldd vsftpd confirmed PAM was being used? If that is the problem, hopefully someone here who is running Redhat/Fedora can advise further since my version doesn't use PAM...

vsftpd not working

Yes. When I checked ldd, it shows that pam is working.
The only thing found was that the file referred in /etc/pam.d/vsftpd as pam_pwdb.so file is not found in /lib/security/.

I don't know how to get that file.

So, (it may not be good), I just changed inside the /etc/pam.d/vsftp as

account sufficient /lib/security/pam_permit.so

and it works. In fact I do not understand very clearly but just read the documentation and tried.

If anybody can help, I will appreciate.

rgds
