set a new password for user nobody...

Postby cmanwalking » 06. February 2006 07:56

I want to set a new password for user nobody of ProFTPD , instead of 'lampp'.
how can i do that?
And i won't use the command: /opt/lampp/lampp security
It means that I want to set the ProFTPD password seperately.

Dear cmanwalking!

That's easy. Take a look into your /opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf, and you will find the following line:

Code: Select all
UserPassword nobody wRPBu8u4YP0CY


The string wRPBu8u4YP0CY is the crypted password of nobody. Now call something like (where "secret" is your new password):

Code: Select all
/opt/lampp/share/lampp/crypt secret


Now take the output of this command and place it insted of wRPBu8u4YP0CY in your proftpd.conf file. Now restart ProFTPD to set your new password active.

Many greetings

very thanks!
If I want to change the user 'nobody' with another name, how to do it?

Simply create a new user on your Linux system.
