[Solved] Ispconfig 3 pure-ftpd-mysql not working

Ispconfig 3 is an open source Cpanel for managing websites .I have been runningispconfing 3-pure-ftpd-mysql Ispconfig 3 on our server ubuntu10.04 from last 6 months. I was running awesomely without any error. I was happy with Ispconfig 3 with its services and function. Last Night I came across strange problem that none of the ftp accounts are not working. Ispconfig uses Pure Ftp as Ftp program .  I try restarting every services but also I am not getting into ftp accounts. Though I can see process of pure-ftpd-mysql , I was unable to login.

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql status
* pure-ftpd is running

I reinstalling package of pure-ftpd-mysql by :

apt-get install pure-ftpd-mysql.

Still not worked for me.

In my syslog I only see that :

ns1 pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from
Oct 24 21:34:33 ns1 pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [NS1] PAM_RHOST enabled. Getting the peer address
Oct 24 21:34:39 ns1 pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [NS1] Authentication failed for user [bikramkawan]
Oct 24 21:34:39 ns1 pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [NS1] Logout.

Finally I checked in hosts.deny . In that file I saw there was uncomment on line


Then I comment that line . Thus I am able to access ftp accounts.

    Note that if “/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql status” simply outputs nothing, it usually means that the pure-ftpd-mysql package is not installed at all. Then just install it with “apt-get install pure-ftpd-mysql” (assuming Debian / Ubuntu) and it should be solved immediately.

    Just had this issue here. I have documented some possible solutions at http://ma.juii.net/blog/fix-ispconfig-ftp-logins
