Plesk 9.5 permission owner/group names displayed wrong

#1 Post by suco » 2010-05-27 09:02

Since an upgrade to Plesk 9.5.2 the file permissions and owner and group names are displayed wrong.

Under Permissions it is no longer "drwxr-x-rx" or "-rw-r--r--" but "flcdmpe (0755)" or "flcdmpe (0644)".

And under Owner/Group it is no longer "loginname psacln" but "10045 2523" (or other numbers)

Any other FTP client I tested shows the right permissions and names.

The Plesk Server runs under Debian 5 and ProFTPD Version 1.3.2e

Let me know if you need further Information.

/edit: Filezilla is version 3.3.2.1

Your server does return the information in that format for the MLSD command. FileZilla shows it unchanged and uninterpreted.

Other FTP clients use LIST.

Note that the output of LIST is not standardized, so you MUST NOT rely on the permissions to be returned in any particular format if using LIST.

Okay, thanks for the info.

So, is there a way to tell FileZilla to use LIST and not MLSD?

I need to see the names of owner and group not the numeric UIDs/GUIDs to see with one view if the owner is right. On webservers with over hundred domains a cannot keep in mind all the numeric UIDs/GUIDs. :cry:

Okay, problem is fixed. I could configure proftpd to use LIST instead of MLSD.

All one has to do is adding this to the proftpd.conf:

Code: Select all

<IfModule mod_facts.c>
    FactsAdvertise off
</IfModule>

The proftpd configuration is not working correctly, sad but true.

Yes, but that would be a ProFTPd issue, right?
