Anonymous ftp: set_crypt_for_anonymous_ftp

Version 1.53


New internal default: set_crypt_for_anonymous_ftp=0 where, if you set this to 1: set_crypt_for_anonymous_ftp=1 by adding it to the directadmin.conf, when DA adds an account to the /etc/proftpd.passwd (and /etc/pureftpd.pdb), it will use a crypt from a blank string. So the net effect is still that a blank password is still used for anonymous logins, however, it seems that newer versions of something (perhaps crypt, perhaps a system library) no longer like an empty crypted value, and now require a crypt, even if it's of a blank string. =============== Bug with pure-ftpd configs: --- init.d, edit: /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd --- For systemd, edit: /usr/libexec/pureftpd_startscript --- change the OPTIONS line from -u 100 to be: -u 99 since anonymous logins use UID 99 (nobody) ----- Some servers will now have a config at: /etc/pure-ftpd.conf If you have this file, edit it and change: MinUID 100 to be: MinUID 99
