In case anyone is having the same issue I reverted that line back /bin/nologin and executed these lines:

echo "/bin/nologin" >> /etc/shells
echo "/usr/sbin/nologin" >> /etc/shells


it is now working

That is really strange then =) When you change that line in /etc/passwd you do not change password, so it should not affect authentication.

Oh. Congratulations. But for some reason I had those lines by default. Maybe some OS-specific problem (mine is CentOS 7).

its pretty crazy this has been broken for a long time and never addressed. in over 2 years.

Under Ubuntu same thing. After you figure out the path , it still does not restrict the path to X user created. It shows all the subfolders and also the permissions are messed up and you cannot edit, download/upload anything.

In other works the addtion FTP feature does NOT work.

Any words from the Vesta team?

Hi all!
I've got the same problem running vesta on debian jessie. Strange enough a new additional ftp user is created but can't login until I change /usr/sbin/nologin to /bin/bash in /etc/passwd. And I am surely using ftp, not sftp.

Same problem here

Problem started recently and no soluition from this (and other topics) worked so far. Both panel FTP added accounts or shell added accounts does not work (wrong login creditentials, and they are good for sure). VSFPTP logs shows just:
Wed Aug 1 23:31:56 2018 [pid 13470] [****] FAIL LOGIN: Client "185.246.*.*"
Wed Aug 1 23:34:12 2018 [pid 13612] CONNECT: Client "185.246.205.52"
Wed Aug 1 23:34:12 2018 [pid 13611] [****] FAIL LOGIN: Client "185.246.*.*"

Any hints? We switched to ssh as temporary fix, but for Client FTP was better.
