Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Proftpd - No Such User Found
Jan 30, 2015
I'm running a brand new installed VPS with CentOS 6.6 and Plesk 12.0.18. I created a subscription and by default a FTP user is created. However, I cannot login with these credentials. I also created a new user but the same problem presists. I'm 100% sure that the username and password is correct.
Filezilla gives me and 530 Login incorrect. But if I look at the /var/log/secure file, I see this odd message (FTP username = test):
Jan 30 16:01:45 transip proftpd: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/pam_stack.so): /lib64/security/pam_stack.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Jan 30 16:01:45 transip proftpd: PAM adding faulty module: /lib64/security/pam_stack.so
Jan 30 16:01:45 transip proftpd: pam_listfile(proftpd:auth): Couldn't open /etc/ftpusers
Jan 30 16:01:45 transip proftpd: 127.0.0.1 (x.x.x.x[x.x.x.x]) - USER test (Login failed): No such user found
No such user found, although it is created with Plesk.
I am noticing that several of my users are wiping out their user root folders ( logs, error docs, etc...) when they fail to use '/httpdocs/' as the root directory when publishing with FTP.
I fixed this by editing the proftpd.conf to use ~/httpdocs/ as the DefaultRoot folder ( instead of just ~/ ).Would it be safer(better) to go through all the ftp users and make the home directory '/httpdocs/' instead of '/' in the admin UI? If yes, what is the best way to do a mass update of this setting for multiple users ( multiple domains ) ?
I have a brand new Plesk 12 Installation with just a first Subscription/Domain for my test. Enabling fail2ban jails brings me the following error for the jails plesk-proftpd and ssh. All others went on.
error 'f2bmng failed: ERROR No file(s) found for glob /var/log/secure'.
I see that /var/log/secure is missing, althoug I already used ssh and ftp to log in once. I can go to touch the /var/log/secure file or adjust the jail configs to proper log file location? Which is the way to go?
My company and I are currently discovering Plesk on a CentOS 6.6 based system. We are migrating from an old system on which FTP usernames could hold uppercase letters, which apparently is not the case in Plesk 11 (or is it because of CentOS?).
Anyway, as we can't change these FTP account names, I was thinking about creating a rule with mod_rewrite in the proftpd.conf file.
So the question is: how can I reinstall/reconfigure proftpd with this module activated? I don't even know where to find the corresponding package (which repo, correct version, etc...)
When trying to access any files or pages I'm getting the error:"Not Found...The requested URL /wp-login.php was not found on this server.Apache Server at calmcomputing.net Port 80"
The standard default page displays but my Wordpress installation does not (nor does anything for that matter). I've looked in the file manager (and via ftp) and all the files are there like they should be. This is the same for any of the subdomains that I've setup as well.
i went to server setting and checked manage php with nginx then start getting 404 Not Found nginx. It was clear that it s a problem with the wordpress permanent links so i went in wordpress back-end and switched to default links then it start working but when i switched to permanent link againi got the previous error again
I searched for a while on internet and i found . URL.... So the problem that i have is that i added this piece of code manually in : /var/www/vhosts/system/domaine.com/conf/nginx.conf....Since it s mentioned above

Unfortunately today the mailboxes of two domains were "gone". The mailbox was still there physically but no mails would be delivered into the mailbox, nor could the user connect to it.
The log said:
Apr 20 07:22:11 plesk dovecot_authdb_plesk: No such user 'email@example.com' in mail authorization database Apr 20 07:22:11 plesk dovecot: auth: Debug: master in: USERfirstname.lastname@example.org#011service=lda Apr 20 07:22:11 plesk dovecot: auth: plesk(email@example.com): Mail account information for firstname.lastname@example.org' was not found Apr 20 07:22:11 plesk dovecot: auth: Debug: userdb out: NOTFOUND#0111 Apr 20 07:22:11 plesk postfix/pipe: 7DD5F5DA02D: to=<email@example.com>, relay=plesk_virtual, delay=90585, delays=90585/0/0/0.03, dsn=4.2.1, status=deferred (Message can not be delivered at this tim$
The only solution that worked for me was to delete the mailbox, create it again and copy the old mails back. That problem only occured in two cases (two domains of one customer). All his other domains worked like a charm and no other customer was affected.
I upgraded to Plesk 12 and now i tried to update with autoinstaller, but i get this errors:
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!

I tried with apt-get but there is no update available.
I have Plesk Panel 11.5.30 # 48 installed on my rented vServer, which is virtualized with Parallels Virtual Automation / Plesk Power Panel. I cannot upgrade to Plesk Panel 12.x because my contract just includes a license for 11.x.
Installing fail2ban 0.8.6-3wheezy3 trough Power Panel works, but installing its configurator "plesk-fail2ban-configurator 12.0.18-debian7.0.build1200140526.11" fails.

I am running CentOS Linux 7.0.1406 (Core) with Plesk Version 12.0.18 Update #19.
Customers who use Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird cannot send Emails through IMAP (Courier) because their mailclients say "Cannot write to sent Folder" even when there is a "Sent" Folder in the IMAP Structure existing. It is also subscribed by the Client.
Outlook Users have to go to: file - account settings > account settungs > Change > more Settings > advanced > root Folder path and enter the word inbox
Mozilla Users have to enter "INBOX." under advanced IMAP Settings in Thunderbird.
So my question is: Why is that ? And cant i Change something as admin on the Server side so all customers dont have to Panic and set an inbox Folder path in their mailclients ?
For customers it has to work without Client-side configuration...
I currently migrate from cpanel to plesk12. Everything is working fine, but the emails are no been received, I´m able to send, but not able to receive.
The error is this one: Apr 29 16:40:14 server postfix/smtpd: connect from mail-oi0-f42.google.com[220.127.116.11] Apr 29 16:40:24 server postfix/smtpd: warning: 18.104.22.168.combined.njabl.org: RBL lookup error: Host or domain name not found.

I thinks it´s permission on the folder, but already run the code : /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --with-spam
It did not solved, is there anything else I can do?
Upgrade from 11.5 reported it had completed but when I log in, I get the grey bar on the left with various options - Hosting Services, Tools & Settings etc. (only Profile & Preferences works) and a main white screen with the words 'File Not Found' in large font black lettering.
There is a bug when trying to delete E-mail accounts in Plesk 12.1.26. It only works if I create a fake Auto-Reply text. If not, I got this error:
mail_responders_control failed: mail_responders_control: No autoresponder found for mailname (firstname.lastname@example.org) mail_responders_control: Unable to prepare SQL statement for query 'DELETE FROM autoresponder WHERE mn=?': library routine called out of sequence
As I read, when Plesk and WHMCS are in the same server, you may have 502 bad gateway errors when creating an account through WHMCS..Page not Found/Timeout/502 Bad Gateway error creating accounts with Plesk 10+..By default Plesk 10 and above performs a forced restart of apache when an account is created or suspended which causes WHMCS to lose connection to the server, and if your WHMCS is on the same server, you will also lose connection to WHMCS at the same time.
In order to resolve this please refer to the following knowledgebase article for instructions on configuring Plesk to perform a graceful restart instead: URL..
But when I activate nginx in Plesk the 502 bad Gateway problem comes back.Is there an option to activate Nginx graceful restart in Plesk?
