Thread: purew-ftpd root login

    Default purew-ftpd root login

    Hello All,

    I am trying to FTP my server as ROOT using pure-ftpd daemon. I get this error

    530 Login authentication failed
    ftp: Login failed.

    while if i do FTP as other user, i successfully login. Any idea, what may be the issue
    Best Regards,

    A ftp root login is a very bad idea anyway, and the ftp server is probably disallowing it to protect you from this bad idea.

    Dear ken_yap,

    This may be a bad idea, but yet i wish to go with this option. Any idea on how to enable root login

    Take a look into this thread:

    ***
    permit root login
    http://osdir.com/ml/network.pureftpd...ads.html#00054
    ***

    And yes, it's a *very bad idea* to get this, even on a lan. I also
    discourage you from setting up :-(

    Don't know what your requirements are (maybe if you explain, someone can
    give you a better option), but *always* use an encrypted channel to send
    sensitive passwords (and root's one is possibly the most sensitive password
    I can think).

    Greetings,
