I have a simple linux server with apache and proftpd installed to server up a web page. Everything worked great until the day I forgot my passwords. Instead of reloading linux I put in the install disk, went to recovery mode, and changed the root password. I rebooted, logged in, changed the passwords, but now I can't ftp into the machine. I have tried using passwd to change the password with no luck.
Any suggestions on why proftpd will not take this new password?
