So I upgraded my Ubuntu Server to 12.04 LTS today and now VSFTPD wont work. I think it is related to this VSFTPd stopped working after update.
However, unlike the asker in that post, I am not getting any error messages. When I log on, I get
220 (vsFTPd 2.3.5) 331 Please specify the password. Password: 530 Login incorrect. ftp: Login failed
I know the password is correct,and I have tried multiple users. vsftpd.log shows nothing other than:
Tue May 1 15:19:48 2012 [pid 2] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.133" Tue May 1 15:19:53 2012 [pid 1] [USERNAME] FAIL LOGIN: Client "192.168.1.133"
Syslog shows nothing. Here is my VSFTPD.conf (mostly default):
listen=YES anonymous_enable=NO local_enable=YES check_shell=NO write_enable=YES local_umask=022 dirmessage_enable=YES use_localtime=YES xferlog_enable=YES connect_from_port_20=YES chroot_list_enable=YES chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list secure_chroot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd/empty pam_service_name=vsftpd rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem
I tried the command mentioned in the previous question to no avail.
sudo chmod a-w /home/user
Thanks, I appreciate all your help!
