CentOS 5 Server :: Local Users Cannot Upload Files To VSFTP SERVER

Nov 25, 2010

I've setup a Lamp Server for Testing, The Lamp Server is Up & Running on CentOs 5.5

I am now trying to setup a VSFTP server where local users can upload files to there home directory so that Apache can serve web pages straight from the directories of system user home/accounts giving users the ability to run their own web sites which are hosted off the main server [tutorial here: [url]

So far i have been able to serve/display index.html files from the users home directory [url] but so far i cant upload files to any user home directory, every time i try to upload a file with filezilla i get this error message: 553 Could not create file. Critical file transfer error

I have searched online for similar problems like mine and so far i've tried alot of the solution but none seem to work. I'm confused, dont know where i went wrong, i put the users in a group called ftpusers and here are the permissions on the users (test, ftpuser & testftp) home directory. have a look an tell me where i went wrong :(

Also the root directory where the web pages are served from is called public_html here are the permissions

Here is my vsftp.conf file can someone check it to see if i made any errors in there:

General :: Files Uploaded By OSX Machines To Vsftp Server Can't Be Deleted By Other Users?

Feb 21, 2011

I have a vsftp server running, and we have problems sporadically where people (not the person who uploaded the file) cannot delete files uploaded from OSX machines. We never have this problem with files uploaded by PCs. Anyone ever heard of this or know what I should check? The users uploading the files all belong to the same group. Also, I think if you log in to the FTP server with another OSX machine, it will let you delete them. I'm looking at the folders now, they have drwxrwxr-x. When i try to delete them from a PC, it gives me a 550 Remove directory operation failed.

Server :: Can't Make Vsftp Works On Ubuntu - Users Can't Login

Feb 20, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 9.10 server and i need to use an ftp server. I installed vsftp but i can't make it to work. What doesn't work is that can't login to the ftp server with my user(s).I created a user ("AddressBookUser") that should access to some files located on "/var/www/fpt/rubriche/". I set this folder as his home.Here is the row for this user in /etc/passwd:

Quote:

AddressBookUser:x:1001:1002::/var/www/ftp/rubriche:/bin/false

This user is member of the group "rubriche_ro" (and no other groups).This is my /etc/vsftp.conf:

Quote:

listen=YES
#listen_ipv6=YES
#
anonymous_enable=YES

[code]...

vsftpd.chroot_list exists, but as you see above the chroot_list_file directive is disabled.When i try to connect to the FTP server the connections is established but after i insert "AddressBookUser" as user name and confirm i get a "530 permission denied" message. This occurs both from the network (LAN) computers and locally:

Quote:

webs@webs:/etc$ ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.
220 Welcome to WEBS FTP service!

[code]...

I can't figure out what is the problem but my thought was that it's a problem related to the user configuration rather than vsftp configuration, but it's only my supposition. If i try to login with the "main" user of my Ubuntu server, "webs" i can login correctly.

CentOS 5 Server :: Vsftp Server With Usernames?

May 18, 2009

I need to setup a way for our Web Developer to login to this particular server to manage the webpages that are hosted. He prefers to use his ftp client/fireftp since he connects to all other servers that way. I can connect via local network but can not seem to connect from my home computer. We have a firebox firewall and we opened port 21. Do we need to open any other ports or just port 21?

Software :: Vsftp Server Shows Some Files Not Others

Apr 11, 2011

I've installed vsftp as ftp server on CentOS5. vsftpd.conf is unedited, works without change as it was installed (it's a private network on which I'm using anonymous ftp.)For some reason vsftp will not serve some files which I downloaded from another system (using ftp.) The downloaded files simply don't show up at all if I come into vsftp via a browser, for example, and 'get' fails in a command-line ftp client. Other files originating from the local machine are served OK.

If I copy the downloaded file, vsftp shows the copy just fine but not the original; both files are in /var/ftp (the ftp server root.)The downloaded file had group and owner as '65534' so I did chgrp/chown root, but that made no difference. Reboot makes no difference; restarting the client or using a different client machine makes no difference.What am I missing or doing wrong? What doesn't vsftpd like about the downloaded files? This is happening on two separate machines, and I'm very puzzled.

Server :: Merging Local And LDAP Users?

Oct 5, 2010

"Merging" may not be quite the right word but that is the desired end result.

Scenario: many Solaris 10 servers, each with various local users. We want to set up LDAP for all for all of them. LDAP server is set up, procedure for getting other servers to use it for user authentication is documented and tested. The question is how to handle users that are in LDAP who also exist as a local user on a given machine.

It appears that the usernames on both sides follow a convention and therefore match but obviously the userids will not match. Local user joe has userid 1234, LDAP user joe has userid 56789.

The way I see it we'll have to:

1. move local user joe's home directory to the path that LDAP user joe will want

2. change local user joe's userid to that of LDAP user joe

3. change joe's files' owner to his new userid

4. remove local user joe

5. finally configure LDAP

Is this a rational procedure? Is there a more effective method? I'm not looking forward to this as there are many servers and each of them have a different set of local users, each with different userids which will have to be handled manually and individually therefore not even scriptable much.

General :: Upload Only Modified Files To FTP Server

May 23, 2011

I want to upload files from my computer to an FTP site and I don't want to upload files that are already on the server. So I need a tool that finds out which local files that are different from the ones on the server, or that don't exists on the server.

Some requirements:

I'm using a cheap provider that does not support rsync or ssh, so I can only use FTP. I generate the files before uploading them, so comparing timestamps is meaningless. I've tried lftp with the mirror command. It's slow (I think it uploads all the files). I upload the files from different computers, so I can't use sitecopy, which uses a local database to keep track of which files are on the server. I'd like to be able to upload all changed files with one command. Preferably no GUI application. And it needs to run in Ubuntu.

I was thinking about creating a tool similar to sitecopy, but which stores checksums of all the files on the FTP server on the server itself. But then I thought that there may already be such a tool.

Ubuntu :: Multi Users Accessing A Remote Server On Local Network

Jul 24, 2010

I would like to experiment a "green" idea of virtual desktop where multiple users are served by a single powerful machine.

I have a server running 24/7. The monitor of this machine is turned off most of the time and the OS is on the login screen.

Other users, in the same local network, use less powerful machines, which could be a thin client or an old Pentium 3 machine. They access their accounts remotely and work with the GUI as if they were sitting in front of the server. Each user sees their own desktop (different themes, screen resolution, etc.). And of course it can happen that several users could log in at the same time.

The usage is modest: mostly web browsing and the usual default applications (office, wine, gimp, etc.). In particular no games or any demanding applications. The users want to use their desktop in graphical mode only.

Question: How do we call this way of using a server? Is it possible with Ubuntu? And how to implement it?

Server :: How To Different Users See Different Files

Jan 13, 2010

There's something I would like to do. It's simple, it MUST be possible. I can't find any way to do it by Googling it. I'm must be looking for it in a wrong way.Let's say I have a directory called dir1. In it, I have these files: A1, A2, A3 belong to user "userA", files B1 and B2 belong to "userB". Both users are in group "groupNO", but the files are in group "groupYES".

What I want is this: if someone tries to mount the folder by NFS (or could it be done with Samba?), as userA, they can only see (or read) files A1, A2, A3,as userB, they can only see (or read) files B1 and B2,as a user in groupYES, they can see and open all the files.This is just the principle. If I need to sort them into directories or use another program on the server-side, that's fine with me. I just want the user to just have to mount the folder over the LAN with a user name and password. I'm fairly sure I can do it by SFTP, but, again, I want the client to be able to MOUNT the folder on their local machine over the LAN no to user a special client.Is that possible? Do I need LDAP? (From what I understand, LDAP is separate from the OS-level mounting process, which is not what I want.)

CentOS 5 Server :: TFTP-server Unable To Send Files To Clients Outside It Subnet?

CentOS 5 Server :: NFS Performance With Files Not Yet Cached By The Server File System?

Feb 25, 2009

I have a weird performance issue with a centos 5 running a nfs server and a rh8 client. I think the fact that it is rh8 client should be downplayed. It is just that with rh8 client the performance degradation seems more clear. See test details below OS in server is Centos 5 x86_64 kernel 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5

1Gb connection between machines File to test over NFS is a 1GB file. First of all I wanted to measure how the network alone performs while using NFS. So in the server side I run a "cat" command on the 1GB file to /dev/null. Please note that the disk read speed is about 98MBs. At this point the file system has the 1GB file cached in memory. In the client side a "cat" on the same file gives me a speed of about 113MBs. It seems then that the bottleneck in this instance is the network and it is very close to nominal speed. So the network performance is really good. (BTW I know that the server got that file from cache because a vmstat or iostat shows no disk activity.)

The second test is reading from disk with no caching involve. In the server I flushed the 1GB file from the memory. For instance by reading another 5GB file and I repeat the same thing as above in the client (a cat on the 1GB file). Now, the server has to go to disk.(vmstat or iostat shows the disk activity). However the performance, now, is about 20MBs, I was expecting something closer so 90MBs. (since the reading speed in the server in the first test showed 98MBs).

This second test was repeated for ext2, ext3, xfs with no significant differences. A similar test using a RH8 NFS server and client gets me close to 60MBs for a 1GB file not cache by the file system in the serverSince network speeds and disk read speeds are not the bottlenecks ... what or where is the limiting factor then?

General :: Copying Files From Remote Server To Local?

Jan 26, 2011

I have a problem while copying files from a remote computer to my local one using the scp command. I am sure that I am using it correctly, please check it below:
---
blah@blah.com:~/g4work> scp blah2@blah2.com:IndirectMethod_Spher...s/H_1.mac.root .
---
What I get in return (instead of the statement saying 100% of file copied) is:
---
On this machine the G4SYSTEM=Linux-g++
---

The interesting point is that the above returned statement is one of the Environment variables set on both the machines that are necessary to work with a toolkit called Geant4. Here is what I get when I type 'printenv | grep G4' just to show you (note the statement in bold):
