    echo Permission Denied


    Working in Debian I've generated a private key.
    Code:
    sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
    Then I am attempting to configure for TLS only.
    Code:
    Sudo echo 2 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS
    Problem is I keep getting an 'permission denied' response.

    hi,

    you are running 'echo' as root, but the redirection ('>') is being called by you. instead, try this:
    Code:
    echo 2 | sudo tee /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS
    or try wrapping the whole thing in quotes:

    Code:
    sudo "echo 2 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS"

    Worked, thanks. Been a few days but iirc it was the quote wrapping that did the trick.

    great, glad you got it sorted.

    marking as Solved. Note that you can do this yourself using the Thread Tools link at the top of the page.
