Angry vsftpd not allowing users to log in


I had set up my ftp server a while ago, but reformatted my hard drive and started from scratch, and there is something I'm missing when setting the options for vsftpd that is screwing up my ftp service.

Every time that someone goes to my ftp site it only allows anonymous logins...(it complains when you put a user name and password) and on top of that it doesn't allow the anonymous user to change anything in the pub (the folder that comes up) no matter what i do... does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

You probably want these in your /etc/vsftpd.conf:
Code:
anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES  # Enable local (real) users to log in
write_enable=YES

Still not working

The options in the conf file had been changed to just that, and yet it still says that the ftp server is anonymous only... is there something i have to do to reload the configuration file?

Restart the vsftpd daemon, typically by typing /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart if you're using classic init.d services.

hmm

Well, i do that and it displays these two lines:

Shutting down vsftpd: [failed]
Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: [ok]

and it still doesnt work...

I must be missing something important, but i just cant figure out what that could be.

Stick this in vsftpd.conf

userlist_enable=YES
userlist_file=/etc/ftpallow
userlist_deny=NO

/etc/ftpallow is the file listing all allowed users for vsftpd ...
Do a 'man vsftpd.conf' for more details.

hmmm

Ok so i am using init.d to control vsftpd so i set listen to no... i checked the status of the service vsftpd and it sais "vsftpd dead but subsys locked"... what does this mean?

EDIT: by the way, now vsftpd seems to restart just fine (i restarted)... yet though i changed /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf to strictly disallow anonymouse users, it still says its an anonymouse user only ftp service

EDIT AGAIN: well the status of the service was "running" until i restarted the service, then it went back to the dead but subsys locked message... then after that it wouldnt restart correctly again >.<
