I’m facing a big problem with FTP and I tried many solutions but none of them work, I did not want to install vsftp. I want to use pure-ftp
||Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
||TLS connection established.
||331 User admin_soctwell OK. Password required
||530 Login authentication failed
||Critical error: Could not connect to server
Some solutions talked about vfstp which I did not want to do.
Other solution was to change the hash but also not working:
ftp = Users.objects.get(user=userName)
ftp.password = password
The service here named : pure-ftpd-mysql.service
If I removed and replaced with normal pure-ftp this should work and how I can do this?
In ftpUtilities.py file, there is ftp.password = hash.hexdigest(). You should replace hash.hexdigest() with password. That’s all you need. Nothing else. Use normal ftp:// port 21 not sftp://
Works for me in Ubuntu 22.04
Not working for me. Ubuntu 22.04. Did the same as you suggested.
Try resetting your FTP password then login again.
I reset the password many times but still have same issue.
After changing hash.hexdigest(), reboot your server and reset your password. I’m using FileZilla btw.
I did this, Changed hash, Reboot and reset password. but not working
This hack is not something we recommend at all. Use sftp this should be the recommended workaround for 22.04 for now
I guess none of the early users of CP on ubuntu 22.04 use FTP.
Ubuntu 22.04 (and RH 9 Rocky 9 alma 9) have PureFTPd 1.5x which does not support MD5 hash.
CP uses MD5 hash for FTP passwords.
A safer solution at the moment is to install the following from Ubuntu 20.04 and put them on hold for updates:
libssl1.1_1.1.1 (which has the openssl vulnerability patched)
The Deb packages are available for download from the ubuntu 20.04 archive.
Anyone know when a fix will be available?
I’ve run into this issue and now I have to change 100+ hashed passwords into plaintext ones as otherwise connections don’t work anymore. Any other solution? pure-ftp config is set do MD5 hashing.
