proftpd 530 Login incorrect?

Post by pratap » 2009/02/28 11:17:18

hi . I was trying to login to localhost using proftpd but it is asking for user name and password . But while installing i did not give any user name and password to proftpd .

I installed proftpd using source code from fftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/proftpd-1.3.2rc4.tar.gz
./configure --sbinddir=/usr/sbin
make
make install

after this i tried to connect to my localhost but it was asking for UName and Password.

[root@localhost ~]# ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
220 FTP Server ready.
500 AUTH not understood
500 AUTH not understood
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (localhost:root): root
331 Password required for root
Password:
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp>

What is the problem did i missed some thing?

proftpd.conf file

For login to your website through ftp you have to create a user and you must have to specify that usergroup in your /etc/proftpd.conf file. Initially i missed that to specify a usergroup in my proftpd.conf file. After specifying a group there you can login as a user which belongs to that group.

now have look of m,y proftpd.conf file and pay special attention on underlined and bold font .. you need to specify a usergroup .
