I'm trying to install Pure-FTPd. I'm going to use it via the internal file-based userlist.The problem is, when I yum install pure-ftpd from rpmforge or CentOS.Karan.Org, I also get mysql, perl-DBI and postgresql-libs as dependencies.Since I'm not intrested in DB-based authentication, I'd strongly prefer to skip these packages.Why are these listed as dependencies, since AFAIK, they are not really dependencies? Can I force yum to skip them somehow?
This create a new error. 421 Unable to read the indexed puredb file (or old format detected) - Try pure-pw mkdb I am getting a feeling this is getting from bad to worse. I attempted to remove pure-ftpd and pureadmin to start over again. However, it appears I cannot remove everything. I attempted the following:
apt-get remove pure-ftpd pureadmin I am not sure what this really does because I can still see the folder /etc/pure-ftpd and I cannot remove it. I could not use rm /etc/pure-ftpd because the system said it was not empty. I also tried sudo aptitude remove pure-ftpd pureadmin . Again I cannot completely remove the folder. How do I completely remove pure-ftpd and pure admin and all databases, files and folders so I have a fresh system ready to start the install again?
I have set up pure-authd and pure-ftpd. They are both running, I have created the socket etc.
In my authentication module (a php script) for testing purposes I have done a vardump in to a file, and have realised that pure-authd is not passing on any variables (username, password of the current person trying to log in via ftp) to the PHP script.
I am sure the authentication module is working (have tested it vigorously on the command line), but after 10 hours wondering why it wouldnt work and messing about with the script, I have realised that the variables were never even getting in to the script in the first place!
I am running the processes such as this:
Everything seems as if it is working other than this. For instance, when testing the setup with a very basic auth module which doesnt require a username or password (the basic module just passes "auth_ok:1" to pure-ftpd and the user is then logged in), I can log in to the FTP server fine.
But like I say, a vardump ($argv) on my proper PHP authentication script would suggest that no username or password are being passed to it.
I'm attempting to upgrade the BIOS in an ASUS 1005HA netbook. The netbook runs SuSE 11.3, and no other OS. All the BIOS utilities on from ASUS are Windows or DOS based. ASUS has a utility titled afudos that apparently flashes the programmable ROM. Running afudos using the dosemu utility suggests that one needs to create a DOS boot drive, execute afudos during a reboot with the new ROM image located on the drive.
How does one accomplish said task on a netbook without a floppy disc drive? Do I create a bootable DOS USB flash drive that contains just afudos and the new bios flash rom upgrade? And if so, how does one do this? As a side issue, it looks like all the major motherboard vendors do not support Linux. That is, all the motherboard drivers require Windows or DOS.
I'm really confused with this one. Yesterday our FTP cluster went down, i havent yet tracked the reason but i suspect a security update killed it as automatic updates are enabled (i will be turning those off now!).
Anyway, FTP connections were receiving a 425 Sorry, Unable to resovle error message, i sound the solution to be to disable dns lookups with the DontResolve > yes option.
but for some unknown reason this is only working on my failover box! when i restart pure-ftpd on the primary box the command switch -H is missing?
i've done the same thing on both boxes by creating a file in /etc/pure-ftpd/conf called DontResolve and editing it to just read the word 'yes', been over it and checked for spelling mistakes and i cant find any reason why its ignoring the option?
I am running an FTP server using Pure-FTPD which was a migration from an OS-X workstation to Fedora 10 - VMware esxi.
This was done for various reasons but the reason for choosing the Pure-FTPD app was due to an easier migration.
The system has been migrated for about a month and works very well. I installed it on the server using yum install pure-ftpd, configured it and imported all the accounts [about 150 accounts] so this is all fab. however we now want to see if we can get an upload notification.
This has lead me to look at the uploadscript option in pure-ftpd. we use virtual users and the pure-pw file.
When we set the directive
The ftp server hangs, I cant seem to see how to get this to work, from my investigation I think the issue is that the yum install is not building the app " --with-uploadscript " i have tried to do a hand install on a test Fedora 10 VM, I downloaded pure-ftpd-1.0.27.tar.gz and unpacked it, did a ./configure --with uploadscript then a make and make install, nothing reports any errors but it doesnt seem to install anything. I can start the server from a command line but there are no config directories ? and even after creating a new user and a passwd-mkdb i cant log in to the server. but that most likely as i dont have a full configuration. but i can t find where to put the configuration files.
I have a dns-323 linux device that's running pure-ftpd with SSL/TLS authentication. Pure-ftpd is sitting behind a linksys router with IP 192.168.1.51. Pure-ftpd is configured for port 8021 and passive port range 55562-55663. The linksys router is configure to forward port 8021 and the passive port range to 192.168.1.51.
From outside my network I can connect to the ftp server using the WAN address of the router. I'm using filezilla 2.2.32 as my client and I choose FTP w/ explicit TLS (no other option will connect). The client will authenticate successfully with pure-ftpd but once it sets up the passive data connection and tries to do a LIST of the root directory, there's a timeout. I'm assuming this is because the passive data connection is not working. In pure-ftpd, I tried changing the passive address that it reports, to be the WAN address of the router, but it did not make a difference. I included the log from filezilla below.
I am having difficulties with Pure-FTPD. I had it working at one time. I recently had to reinstall Ubuntu 10.10 because pure-ftpd stopped working for some reason and now I have a fresh install but pure-ftpd still does not work. This is what I did to install it.
Sudo apt-get install pure-ftpd
Using the Ubuntu Spftware Center I installed PureAdmin. I then create a virtual user. Then in the terminal entered the following:
I read somewhere that this could be a filezilla issue and to fix it I need to use active mode and use the filezilla external address [URL]... Of course I did this and the filezilla solution did not work this time. I am fairly sure it is a server issue this time.
I have a "friend" who hosts a couple of websites that I maintain. I have always used filezilla client to connect and update the files on the website.I lost access for a little while and he said that "The profiles had accidentally been dropped".He reinstated everything but now I cannot complete a log on session. I maintain several other websites which have the same PURE FTPd server at their end and I can connect to these OK.The delicacy of the matter is that, with no changes at my end, and my other sites working, logic suggests that something has changed at his end. I have very patiently worked through all his suggestions but to no avail.I can't suggest that he is at fault when he claims expertise in the field and I am a complete lamer when it comes to FTP.
I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to review the log on result below and see if they can throw some light on the situation for me.(I have anonymised the IP address and other information for security reasons)
I mistakenly removed my /home of openSUSE while trying to install another distro. My root pertition is OK. openSUSE is shown in grub. but i cannot boot into it as there is no /home is there any way to fix this without removing my openSUSE?
I have installed vsftpd by "yum -y install vsftpd",disabled anonymous login and set .When I use a linux client's file browser to login using a user account "ftpacc" by ftp://ip_address, its location is "/" instead of /home/ftpacc".When I use a window client to login, its location is "/home/ftpacc"
Tried to install Gnome after the minimal server (console based) install.I would like to install a graphical GUI now What to do? wich packages? tried zypper gnome-desktop (or something similar) but it wasn't enough.
If I install the factory release now, can I easily convert my system to a normal 11.3 point release later, after 11.3 is out? If so, how would I do it? (11.2 has an issue that affects me. It's fixed in 11.3 already, so I have to use 11.3 if I'm going to use openSUSE.)
i have a backtrack install that i would like to keep while installing suse for an everyday OS; i start the install process but when it gets to partitioning the hard drive, it doesnt seem to recognize anything already being on there; it just gives me the setup for suse, ie: sda1 ext3 = OS sda2 or sda5 = swap. do i have to configure a partition scheme? i installed ubuntu on a desktop alongside windows very easily due to grub graphical install/partition; is there not a similar function for suse?
I need to get a FTP daemon running on my computer, so I tried to install vsftpd It worked, but later I wanted to try pure-ftpd so I removed vsftpd. Then I discovered I wanted to go back to vsftpd, so I removed pure-ftpd. Now when I type
sudo apt-get install vsftpd
It returns something like this
nossr50@robert-HAL9000:~$ sudo apt-get install vsftpd [sudo] password for nossr50: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
I'm relatively new to ubuntu. I have an IBM X31 type 2672. It was running windows 7 and ubuntu netbook edition 10.04. I installed windows xp after running these two OS' for a while to try and fix an issue I had with video playback. However, when I run the pc now it boots straight into xp. I have read the forums about reinstalling grub. However, the first command in the grub shell that locates the HDD doesn't work . Which means the other commands don't work
I am trying to install VSFTPD on my Fedora instance of Linux. I have a Wordpress blog that I want to access through FTP. I did an install on VSFTPD and am kind of stuck. I try to FTP into my IP through [URL]
I have customized lucid so it is easier on my computer specs. My old laptop only has 256mb of ram. So I have removed openoffice and replaced it with abiword/gnumeric and installed the lxde desktop. I have had this configuration for a month and half now and update manager has never had a problem with it.Now all of the sudden it does and is trying to reinstall openoffice all the time.
I removed the linux-image-2.6.32-31-generic package (and all the older ones) from my 64-bit Lucid Lynx machine. When I boot up, the grub menu only has memtest as a choice.
I am able to boot the machine with the LiveCD and can mount the drive. (look like it's read only mode right now.) But now, how do I reinstall the linux-image-2.6.32-31-generic package(or any package for that matter) onto the disk partition that represents the machine?
i used klamav to scan for virus. yes, klamav from the repository. the scan said it had found possible virus. ok so i removed them from /usr/lib. then i realized kalmav just removed important components to be able to boot 9.10 properly. my desktop is broke!! so what do i do? use klamav to scan another install of 9.10 and try to move the removed components from the new install to the broke?
