Seems to be an issue with Pass Auth function. Change the account password and try again.

You update the system using YUM Manager?

I have two VPS... in the first the CWP is updated and the packages are updated too using YUM Manager, FTP stop accept logins. In the second  the CWP is updated, but system isn't... and the FTP works well.

The YUM Manager of web panel is the same "yum update" command...

So, it's a point that need attetion, because all cases I know, the FTP issue starts after the update of the system.

The same,... 0.9.8.749 don't fix ftp issue

CentOS 6 - CWP version: 0.9.8.573 ftp no issues,... working fine

only ftp issues with CentOS 7 - CWP version: 0.9.8.749

I updated my server today to version 0.9.8.751 and the FTP issue still unfixed.

I found a workaround... I tested in my server in this scenario:


In terminal, enter the command below:

Code: [Select]
echo '/sbin/nologin' >> /etc/shells

In another server I do a system update using the YUM on a CWP version 0.9.8.751 and the issue with the FTP don't occur.

I think that the FTP login error occur only after a YUM update in a CWP 0.9.8.747 server.

Title: Re: Problem with FTP access
Post by: ehstbr on December 12, 2018, 04:40:11 PM
but this error persists ...

Try execute the "update_cwp" and the "yum update -y".

Code: [Select]
sh /scripts/update_cwp
yum update -y

After this... execute the command:

Code: [Select]
echo '/sbin/nologin' >> /etc/shells
For me the command above fixed the issue... sorry if it don't works to you, I'm not a linux expert. :-(

You're a genius!

echo '/sbin/nologin' >> /etc/shells

you could have a double line if the issue is not related to shell file so there is an improved way how this would need to be done

Code: [Select]
grep "^/sbin/nologin$" /etc/shells || echo "/sbin/nologin" >> /etc/shells

Hi,
can anyone say what exactly to do to recover the user's ftp access ...
Here are opinions about how to circumvent the problem that I think is wrong...

cwp autoupdate has now autodetection for this issue related to centos 7.6 updates so there is no need for this forum topic anymore as cwp will fix this automatically.

If your server don't update automatically yet, just force update your CWP using the update_cwp script.

Code: [Select]
sh /scripts/update_cwp

Hi, I had the same issue on CentOS 7.6 with a newly created FTP User.
After struggling for hours I found that that the password field under FTP Manager->Add User has the following Condition:
Code: [Select]
min="6" maxlength="12"
So just choose a password between 6 and 12 and you should be fine.


This should also be mentioned in any Wiki or changed!

This worked. The stupid thing is there is no message with this requirement when creating the user, nor a validation error for the password.
