Today I just wanted to create a FTP Server with virtual users so i just used vsftpd. But i got everytime this error:
vsftpd: pam_mysql - required option "db" is not set
I solved the error by changing my SQL password to a password without special characters like “#*§$…“. It just seems like the /etc/pam.d/vsftpd file dont likes them….
Hope i helped you 🙂
