I've been searching the web, without finding any sollution to my problem.vsFTPd is acting really weird. I've never seen this problem before, and I've been using vsftpd for some years nowWell.. The thing is, I've made a user that chroots to the folder /var/www on my server. And when I then try to chmod the file /var/www/htdocs/testsite/index.html through my ftp-client, I only get the error "550 SITE CHMOD command failed.", and when I then check in my /var/log/vsftpd.log it says
Code: FAIL CHMOD: Client "192.168.50.58", "/htdocs/testsite/index.html 777" Which I think would mean that it tries to chmod the file "/htdocs/testsite/index.html" instead of chmod the
I had Ubuntu 10.04 installed entirely on my 750 gig SATA drive. Yesterday I backed up my /home and installed a 200 gig drive and reinstalled using the 200 gig drive as / and swap. The 750 gig drive was all /home. Now, whenever I reboot it comes up saying it had serious errors mounting /home and I have to reboot again to get it to boot up. I never had this issue when the 750 gig drive was running the entire show. Has anyone else run into this? S.M.A.R.T. hasn't been throwing any warnings or errors so I am at a loss as to what "serious" errors Ubuntu could be running into.
'Software update center' is throwing error. The error was uploaded to LaunchPad. Following is the like to it: [URL]
Following is the description on how it started misbehaving which I added to the bug description:
Was trying to install chromium, vlc & restricted-ubuntu-extras in my first restart after installing ubuntu 11.04. during installing chromium (which was the first on the list), Ubuntu Software Center stopped responding after downloading about 16MB. I restarted my machine. after which it said that chrome is installed. on installing restricted-ubuntu-extras, this error came.
Now I am not able to install anything using 'Software Update Center'.
my iwlist scan is normal. ethernet connection ok, wirless not working but does seem to receive. wifi radar lists my router ssid. Does this say I have the correct router for my wireless is my question? I am also getting this error message with this system on KDE, LENNY. From KWLAN a wpasupplicant front end.
"you do not have permissions to start pppd or pppd was not found. Dial up networking will not work."
I installed lighttpd to be able to view cgi files that display the status of my UPS. For the most part is has worked w/o incident i.e. until recently when the UPS battery failed on my APC backups xs 1500 lcd. I could not view the multimon.cgi file via the localhost or 127.0.0.1 url e.g.: [URL]... I'd get 404 page not found message. After checking links here and on the web, I tried: [URL]... The page is displayed. From this discovery, I'm not sure that this is a web server configuration or a network host configuration issue or what. I'm running Lucid with all updates, no mods to lighttpd except I added the mod_fastcgi line to the lighttpd.conf file
I am trying to share files between Windows XP machine, ubuntu server, debian server and ubuntu desktop. But mainly between ubuntu server and Windows XP computer.I also like to learn samba, because probably I could do all this with ftp server as well.I set up and configured samba following the instruction on Online Ubuntu Server Guide.But when I run the command:sudo /etc/init.d/samba restartI get:bash: /etc/init.d/samba: No such a file or directory I don't know what is wrong?
I have an SD-VIA-1A2S PCI card with 2 sata ports (and one ATA-133 that isn't used). Two new Western Digital Caviar Green drives (WD10EARS 1TB) throw repeated errors in kern.log (removed date/time/host info for brevity):
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 - 2.6.28-18-generic, though I have tried live cds of Ubuntu 9.10, Fedora 12 and OpenSUSE 11.2 - all running various 2.6.31 kernels - and all received the same error.Based on testing these drives and this card in two other machines and combos of connecting the drives directly to the motherboard or the add-in card, I'm relatively convinced that it's the VIA chipset that is the problem.Another computer that also has an onboard VIA SATA chipset (like the add-in card) produces the same errors when the drives are directly on that motherboard. I have been able to verify that the drives are perfectly good, and I tried everything I can think of in terms of swapping cables, psu isn't overloaded, etc.
The error happens on boot once or twice, after using fdisk on the drive once or twice, and constantly when attempting to sync a new mdadm raid 1 array created on the two drives.I'm completely open to buying a new PCI add-in card if someone can recommend one with 2 internal sata ports that works well in Debian/Ubuntu.
Update-notifier told me there were updates today and I installed them. Among them were some for chromium (the browser, not the game ). After the update I couldn't start the browser. I tried starting from terminal and got: "Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-minimal.c: 138: realloc: Assertion `ptr == alloc_last_block' failed!" "I haz a fail!", I thought to myself and then tried rebooting and then reinstalling. Neither worked. This is on a 64-bit machine. Everything else works as expected. Using Firefox now, but I want my chromium-browser as well.
My problem right now is i'm trying to configure vsftpd to work with ssl.
My vsftpd is configured with virtual users and everything works fine (without ssl). I can ftp to the server from a client on the same network.
Now when i try to enable ssl, the server won't start at all. Actually, if i run service vsftpd start, it look like it is starting, but if i check the processes, vsftpd is not there, and obviously, if i try to ftp, it fails.
So as soon as i turn ssl_enable=YES in vsftpd.conf, vsftpd won't start
The only message i get is in /var/log/daemon.log init: vsftpd main process (6407) terminated with status 1 init: vsftpd respawning too fast, stopped
I used init 0 to make server shutdown,and replaced the power cord when I boot the server,it can't enter the GUI then I used init 5 and get the following message
Could not start the X server (your graphical environment)due to some internal error. contact your system administrator or check your syslog to diagnose. In the meantime this display will be disabled. Please restart GDM when the problem is corrected.
I foolishly changed the mount point of a partition on a HDD which Linux was not in fact using, and now when I try to start up I get a message box stating:- Could not start kstartupconfig. Check your installation.
How do I recover the situation. I do not have an up to date recovery disc. I do have a full bootup disc of Suse 11.2 - could I use the opportunity to update without losing all my personal files, or should I use the old 10.2 disks? The first essential is to get something back up and working.
I have installed fedora 13 in my system. httpd server is also installed. when I tried to start the service of httpd, following error message displayed: Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
I am using red hat enterprise 5.7 OS and the problem is that vsftpd won't start. When issuing Service vsftpd start it comes up with failed. I am using the default RPM to install it, also using the default vsftpd.conf
Using IMAP to retrieve emails in Evolution is not working correctly. Some messages are recieved, others are not. Those messages that cannot be recieved, reports the following error message: Unable to retrieve message
i have search for a long time regarding this matter but i couldn't found nothing.... The facts are like this:
1. I have a server on Ubuntu Linux 10.10 with the following modules installed: - Webmin 1.530 - BIND DNS Server - Fetchmail Retrieval - Dovecot - Postfix - a domain (www.domain.com) - the website it's not hosted on my machine
What i did until now:
- establish a local mail network like firstname.lastname@example.org - successfully installed and configure Fetchmail Retrieval. like: email@example.com mapped to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. The problem: Sending an e-mail using a POP3 client like Outlook from an local account! If i use the local address and try to deliver a message outside my local network the following error is sent by System Administrator: Code: Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
I am very pleased with a new Squeeze desktop that I built. I am use to using BSD style init scripts (Slackware, OpenBSD, Arch) and am trying to tweak my system not to start vsftpd at boot. I use vsftpd occasionally to move large files between computers on my LAN. My inittab shows run level 2 as default.

Im trying to instal Sun Virtualbox but when download completes and I click on install I get the following error>>Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) I wont even bother with this software if there are others out there that are as easy to use. I used it on Windows and thought it was great ! (thats how I eventually switched to Linux, by using it virtually at first)
I have a single harddisk partitioned with Ubuntu Maverick and Windows 7 installations. I installed Windows first and then Ubuntu, after resizing partitions and adding a new one for Ubuntu. Win7 did not appear in the Grub2 boot menu. I added it (sda3), but on rebooting, I get the message "BOOTMGR is missing/Press Ctrl+Alt_Del to restart".
I understand that Win7 might have put its boot manager in another partition, and sda1 had FAT. I added sda1 as another grub2 entry, but when I try that, I get the error message "Windows Boot Manager/ Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause... Status 0xc0000225/ Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible." Attached are fdisk and parted outputs; and the grub2 files I created. How do I get Windows 7 to boot up?
I am building a new server on Rackspace Cloud. When they create an instance, it is a raw install. I have several other instances running Ubuntu 10.04 with vsftpd running just fine.But I have an app that doesn't like php 5.3 so I created a new server instance with Ubuntu 9.1 and php 5.2.Here is my problem... I install vsftpd EXACTLY the same way I've installed it dozens of times on Ubuntu 10.04. But when I try to access it, I get an ERROR 500 "vsftpd: cannot locate user specified in 'ftp_username':ftp. I'm SURE I'm using a valid username & password.
I install and configure the vncserver following and reading 1000papers, but all of this present the same problem; when i try to connect to my vncserver,recive this mesage: unable connect to socket: No route to host (113) The OS version is Fedora Core 14 and tigervnc-server i try different solutions including:Allow TCP connection modifing files /etc/gdm/custom.conf and /usr/share/gdm/gdm.chemas Disable SELinux removing iptables Here follow the vncserver configuration:
The ip address of the vncserver is correct because i can do ssh on it. Where or what can i do?
