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 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'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 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'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?
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)
How do I permission a folder?I have a group called serveradmin..I want to add and give the group server admin write permissions to folder /logs.I know how to permission a file.. but changing the folder permissions isn't coming to me.I must add that I don't want to remove any of the current permission on the folder/directory.
A rather new user here, was messing with the preferences on a user folder of mine on Karmic, looking for a way to make the folder invisible to users (like the old windows option). Set it to 'none', then closed it, returned to the directory finding the folder with a box with an 'x' on it.
Went to open it, it says 'access denied'. So I think 'okay, how do I undo that', go back to see if I can restore it back to 'read & write' with no sucess.
Seached the forums for a solution to this issue, most of solutions revolve around 'gksudo nautilus' which I attempted to open via command-line. Nothing seemed pop open after I entered my password in responce to entering said command-line, probably because I really don't know how to use Nautilus.
I'm trying to move a file to opt folder. But I cant do it because I dont have the permission to do it. In folder preferences it says " you are not the owner"How can I move a file to opt folder? or How can I change the folder permission settings?
Im trying to run Wow with Wine , But its telling me i need to give to the wow folder write access , so im right clicking on the folder , then Permissions , And it has create or delete folder already on , but right below im selecting Read and Write but it doesnt let me do it :/ just goes back to blank .
I've installed slax6 onto an ext3 partition and setup a users account, i've also just managed to mount some virtualbox shared folders which are working and i can access them fine. The problem is I cannot seem to give limited user accounts access to them. root can access them no problem! but right clicking and changing the permissions do nothing, because once I click apply, reopen the menu, the changes have reverted. I've tried chmod'ing them.. chmod o=rwx /mnt/folder I used 'o' because I can't seem to change the group permission for the folder. The shared folder I am mounting is formatted in NTFS and the other in ext3, I can't change the permissions of either.
I have a system in which I do not have root access to. On that system, I have my own directory which I share with other users. I am trying to clean it up when I noticed that there was a subdirectory created by another users in my group that I cannot delete. It has all the permissions set besides global write. How can I delete this folder without root permission? I can't even chmod or chown it.
The permissions for "/home/user1/safe" change from 755 to 700 and I am unable to access "/home/user1/safe/folder". Also "home/user1/safe/folder" changes owner and group to root with permissions of 700. My guess is that this is being caused by ntfs-3g, but how to pass on uid options in this example. Is this even doable?
I recently compile Kernel 2.6.34 (to fix the AMD PowerNow issue with 1055T processor, and it worked!) However, the device /dev/shm starts up at boot as Read-Only.
Google Chrome requires this device to be user-writable, or it won't start up. Presumably, the stock kernels (and all that are updated) have it set to User-Write. I have not noticed any other ill effects with the permission being read-only. If I do: sudo chmod a+w /dev/shm Everything will work from there, but each time I reboot, I have to do that. How do I make that permission-change permanent?
I wanted to know is there anyway we can change the document root location /var/www to some other custom location. I tried modifying this location information in couple of conf files in /etc/httpd, but I started receiving lots of error messages from selinux on labelling issues. So I had to revert back.
I know I asked this question before, but I was running CentOS and I used "chuser" and that worked just fine, but for some reason in Fedora it doesn't exist. Is there another command that works in Fedora?I'm tring to change all files, and folders in my "www" folder to "apache:apache"
