Cannot login FTP (all Users)

    since one day i have a big Problem: all Users can't log in with FTP. They always get an 530 error message. (530 Login incorrect)

    When i look in the var/log/messages there is an error, that the user isn't found. But the users exist.

    It worked all fine, since one day.

    Can it be, that it is a problem caused of the OpenSSL installation at this night?

    I hope some1 knows, what i need to do, to repair the ftp service.

    My current System is Suse 9.1 Plesk 7.5.3.

    thx a lot

    The FTP users are checked against /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow as they are system users. Are you sure that they really exist on your system and they were not deleted?

    Solution to cannot login FTP (all Users)

    Just type:

    pwconv creates shadow from passwd

    done its working ! it created a shadow file that was missing.
