Reinstalled Pure-FTPD — CyberPanel - WebHosting Control Panel for OpenLiteSpeed

Reinstalled Pure-FTPD

Hello, I was having TLS issues with FTP server so I reinstalled Pure FTPD but it's not reading the list of FTP users.

pam_unix(pure-ftpd:auth): check pass; user unknown


  • When use want a complete removing of a package you need to purge it (usaualy it means removing also config files).

    aptitude purge pure-ftpd-mysql

    Anyway, when a config file for an installed package is missing, you can use the following command to force dpkg to reinstall original missing configuration files :smile:

    dpkg --force-confmiss -i /var/cache/apt/archives/pure-ftpd-mysql_1.0.24-1_i386.deb

    Assuming you don't have done an:

    apt-get clean

    that remove the cache :)
  • Thank you, I fixed it a few days 2 days ago, I updated CyberPanel and removed pure-ftpd package, the issue was having not the same version of pure-ftpd, pure-ftpd-mysql and pure-ftpd-common, once I did that, I reconfigured all the cfg files. Thanks anyways.
