pure-ftpd help


Hi all

I am having trouble getting Pure-ftpd to create virtusl users. I know where I am going wrong, just need a pointer in the right location.

To get Pure-FTPd to create virtual users, amongst other things, you need to add
Code:
/usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd -A -b -B -c 5 -C 2 -E -j -l puredb:/etc/pureftpd.pdb -R -u 1 -X
into your rc.local file.

However, being debian based, I dont have an rc.local. I have rc.boot, rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d, rc3.d, rc4.d, rc5.d, rc6.d, and rcS.d. They are all folders.

So, where would I put that command in instead of rc.local on a debain based distro?

Thanks

Hong

Take a look at the documentation on the pureftpd site it has the correct syntax and examples for you to follow. You might want to grab a download of PureAdmin, it's a pureftp admin gui.

Thanks.

I read thru it all, and it doesnt mention anything about the rc.local file. I did as it said, and created a user 'dave' but when I try to log in (as anything) it says 'Connection Refused'. FW is off.

Any suggestions?

Hong

Im editing the /etc/rc2.d/S20pure-ftpd
But i messed up, my pc won't boot anymore.
Maybe i can delete the whole script,
and search for a way to automatically run it on boot.

edit:
Isn't there a solution in debian, u can easilly add daemons/programs on boot?
U found something?

But i can get it working ofcourse, but not with autostarting it on boot.
Just stop the server, and run with the commands u want.
But isn't there a replacement for rc.local, i found this:

http://www.plope.com/Members/chrism/...rc_local_equiv

gonna test it later

WORKING

- I deleted /etc/rc2.d/S20pure-ftpd (it is a link to /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd, but best u can backup it)
- I created the file /etc/init.d/local
- The first line:
#! /bin/sh
- Then just the commands to run it, i did:
/usr/sbin/pure-ftpd -lpuredb:/etc/pureftpd.pdb &
- Then save the file and make it excutable with:
chmod +x /etc/init.d/local
- And then link the file with:
update-rc.d local defaults 80

That was it U can do some echo's to see on boot its running but its just working =)
Hope it helps u 2!
