After following some of the links that this thread referenced (since it is 
totally related to the one I put in on friday), I found the "rollback" 
solution, to disable pbkdf2 authentication.  I did attempt pbkdf2 for a while, 
but openssl upgrade and pbkdf2 recompile issues have led me to drop that.  Can 
someone PLEASE document the pbkdf2 issues and this disable feature on the 
galaxy wiki page:

   So I tried a new version of ProFTPd
   I was not able to locate lines in universe_wsgi.ini which disable PBKDF2

The answer here does switch the passwords back to SHA1 format: (See )
