correct file /etc/pam.d/ftp

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2005-07-13 08:44:14 UTC
The /etc/pam.d/ftp is owned by the proftpd package not pam.

Even your provided ftp file is not right. The correct solution is to remove the
paths completely leaving only the module filenames there. However the file is
wrong also by other means - it uses pam_pwdb but this is not setup by default in
Fedora Core so if you want to use system accounts for logging into the ftp the
/etc/pam.d/ftp should be changed similarly to the /etc/pam.d/vsftpd of the
vsftpd daemon.

pam configuration for vsftpd

Comment 5 Matthias Saou 2005-07-13 09:24:30 UTC
Looks like the pam file provided inside the proftpd sources is 64bit
incompatible and got obsolete by now too. I'll test a new proftpd build with a
pam.d file based on the vsftpd one (basically the same, but using the
/etc/ftpusers it always has), and if all goes well, I'll release a new Extras build.

Comment 6 Matthias Saou 2005-08-02 15:09:11 UTC
The fixed packages are waiting to be signed and be pushed :

http://buildsys.fedoraproject.org/logs/4/305-proftpd-1.2.10-6.fc4/

Things now work for me, but I've only been able to test on i386, so confirmation
that the new pam.d file makes things work on x86_64 would be nice.

Comment 7 Oliver Voelker 2005-08-03 08:16:46 UTC
the fixes are working on x86_64
