  • FTP and Shell Accounts

    In order to allow people to FTP into their home directories, I've had to enable their accounts to use shell (although they're still set to use /sbin/nologin).

    Is this normal, or a bug?

    Thanks :)

    FTP Accounts are locked into /home/USRENAME/

    From the FTP management page in SiteWorx, you can setup more FTP accounts and lock them into any directory from /home/USERNAME right down to any sub-folder below. :)

      Yeh the locking is good. But the server kept disconnecting users that didn't have the Shell Account thing "Enabled" :/

        I uspect there is some confusion:

        Are you using the main system user that is created by the first 8 characters of the domain (e.g mydomain for mydomain.com) or the ftp sub user ftp@mydimain.com -- note: the @mydomain.com is part of the user?

        The main system user should NOT need to have ssh access for the subuser to ftp in.

          Oh, I was using the first 8 characters.

          I see now; any user can login with user@sld.tld, without having the shell enabled :)

          Thanks Tim

            People without shell enabled can't login now :(

            I've had them try interworx-username@their-domain.tld, shell-username@their-domain.tld, and both of the usernames alone, but none work :(
