Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I configured ProFTPd and ProFTPd Admin on my Debian Squeeze server. I added the group and the user I added with ProFTPd Admin. I only get 530 Login incorrect when I'm trying to log in.

Logging in with the root user and password still works.

What can the problem be? (We can discuss it in the comments.)

What do the logs say? –  mgorven Jun 7 '12 at 4:23
I don't know what the problem was. I removed ProFTPd and ProFTPd Admin, and purged it. Then I reinstalled with apt-get proftpd-basic proftpd-mod-mysql. Then I enabled SQL in the modules.conf and set up the database manually. Now it works. –  Friend of Kim Jun 7 '12 at 10:00
