"./configure --with-virtualchroot" breaks virtual users in pure-ftpd
Hi there.

Have had pure-ftpd running for a while, now decided that it'd be nice to be able to use symbolic links inside the accounts of users.

So I went back and compiled pure-ftpd this way:

./configure --with-altlog --with-puredb --with-quotas --with-virtualchroot
Everything's fine if real users log on. But if one of the virtuals logs in and tries to list his root directory, he invariably gets

150 Accepted data connection
226-Sorry, we were unable to read [.]
226-Options: -a -l
226 0 matches total
List Complete: 0 bytes in 3,92 (1,00 KBps)


./configure --with-altlog --with-puredb --with-quotas
fixes the problem again.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Regards,

No ideas?

Will have to find another ftp daemon then.

Thanks anyway to the 9 people who viewed this thread.

Guess I worked around it now by using mount --bind.

Thanks anyway.
