Setting up an FTP Server using ProFTPD


I've basically killed off the anonymous logins, and trying to setup logins for individual people. I basically copied the anonymous login configuration, changed the home directory, and added the user by:

Code:
useradd hpicomau
passwd hpicomau
[password]
For some reason, however, I cannot seem to figure out why I can't login. I'm sure there's quite a few reasons why not, but seeing as I'm posting in this forum - assume the worst, and go over them for me. hehe

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What distro are you using ? Can you login physically with your new user account you created ??

And what do you mean by "I basically copied the anonymous login configuration.." ??

well, I removed teh "copied anonymous configuration" anyways, found out that was useless. No, I cannot login using another user via ftp. Not sure what distro it is - it's a co-located server.

Well clearly from your steps you've shown you did to create a user, I would make sure they are in your /etc/passwd file, assign them an initial group, and check to make sure they were given a home directory as well.

uname -a should tell us what distro it is that were working with to help us out.

Well for the linux distro, i got this:
Code:
Linux xpre01-01 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
the home directory for my user is /home/www/directory

which has a permission set of 755.

chown is ftp:user

Can't figure out why it won't let me in

Is there any other way for you to login to this machine with that newly created user account, that way we can determine if its the actual account or just that account logging into thru FTP ??
