  1. These instructions seem to get the server running, but I’m unable to connect with any local user. It keeps telling me my password is invalid, even though I can ssh with that username/password just fine.

    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
    Response: 220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
    Command: USER ftpuser
    Response: 331 Please specify the password.
    Command: PASS ********
    Response: 530 Login incorrect.

    1. For a new user you would do:

      # useradd -m -G ftp -s /sbin/nologin -d /home/ftpuser ftpuser

      (This also sets the login shell to /sbin/nologin which effectively disables ssh login for the account.)
      For an existing user you would do:

      # usermod ftpuser -G ftp -s /sbin/nologin -d /home/ftpuser

  2. Using the pam file and virtual users with SSL/TLS, would i have to use the user_config_dir= option to set specifics for those users so they have seperate login directories, since those users aren’t in the centos users account, but in the separate pam database file?

  3. it wont let me upload anything, i am using filezilla, it says error 553 could not create file and 550 could not change directory

  4. this is the usual ‘type it in’ and hope for the best.
    surely a gui os like suse should at least have a simple gui to add authenticated ftp users
