I've tried and tried, searched and searched, and cannot find out how to get FTP working. It almost seems as if I'm the only one on earth with this problem, and it has become quite frustrating.
Until February, I had been using old Slackware 9. I had everything working, Apache, MySQL, FTP, PHP... You name it. It wasn't until I upgraded to Slackware 10 (And 10.1) that I can't get the FTP to work. I had given up until recently, when I decided I REALLY wanted FTP again.
The program is running of course, as I can log in as anonymous. However, if I try to log in as just a plain user, let's say I named it "people", I get:
220 *FTP SERVER TYPE JUNK HERE*
331 Please specify the password.
530 Login incorrect.
I've tried this with both ProFTPd and vsFTPd, and get the same 530 error. Both the username and password are DEFINATELY correct. I've gone through both configuration files (vsftpd.conf and proftpd.conf), played with ftpusers, inetd.conf... Nothing works (These are the only file configurations I see brought up in online forums). I'm no expert on Linux in any way... I'm just a casual user who wants Linux simply for better security for the everyday things I do, so my knowledge on what to do is very limited...
Does anyone know what's wrong, or have any suggestions on what I can do to fix this? I'm willing to try anything, so if anyone has any thoughts on this, please respond. If you need any additional information, please ask and I'll post it right away.
Problem solved. It was the way the users were being created, heh.
