This is the first server I have built using keys but don’t think that’s where the error lies.
I can get FTP connection using the same Vesta CP admin login details. But other FTP accounts made within domains get linked to /sbin/nologin and return
Status: Connecting to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX… Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=7 Command: open “loginuser@ipaddress” 22 Command: Pass: ******* Error: Authentication failed. Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server Status: Disconnected from server
User userlogin not allowed because shell /sbin/nologin does not exist

First trial was on a fresh install with minor personal configurations (including current updates) Second was a fresh install with only Vesta CP installed
All installs have been on Ubuntu 14.04.5 x64
Yet my current server using the same OS with minor personal configurations and some major updates which have not gone according to plan and causing some funny issues. I can create new FTP users in Vesta CP that associate with /usr/bin/rssh all work.
Thanks in advance.
