comment Linux user issues with PAM?
Many many thanks to @osgx for taking time with me to work this out. This has worked with regard to user being able to ssh in now. I have other permissions issues with the ftp, but I've asked that now in a separate question. I had followed a guide to setup users, suggesting /bin/false as their empty shell. As osgx has pointed out, this is not a shell file. I didn't know any better. Thanks all for the help.

There is no /etc/nologin. The files /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow look fine I think. Nothing out of the ordinary there. How secure is it for me to be posting those files here?

I've actually turned off PAM authorisation in the sshd_config and still can't login. I don't think this is a PAM issue anymore. Any other ideas @osgx? I'm really, really baffled...

Do you think it makes a difference that there is no "system-auth" file in the pam.d directory?
