    Hi there,

    after reinstall of ISPConfig due to a hardware related problem, I can`t Login into any FTP.

    It seems that before the reinstall anonftp was used(at least I found users like web4_anonftp).
    Now, when creating a new Client (with FTP-checkmark), such user is not being created - nor can I log in(new or old accounts).

    Please point me in the right direction - bear in mind, my shell repertoire is quite limited...

    Please have a look in the ISPConfig logfile for errors:

    OK - here is a warning I get, hope it is relevant:

    Does your /etc/passwd file contains the user web4_anonftp ?

    Also check the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users if web4_anonftp is in there.

    OK - I think I am asking the wrong question:

    Anonymous FTP on the domain belonging to web4 IS possible - but how do I create a "regular" FTP-Login?

    When I hit the Web-FTP button in ISPConfig, I can not login:
    login failed as user ...

    Create a user on the "user & email" tab of the website and use this username and password for login. If you check the administrator checkbox for a user, this user will be able to upload files with FTP to the main website directory.

    Thanks, Till - that was it ...

    I promise to read the manual from front the end - and not just skip over it!
