Can't log in as anything but root via SSH



Hello all,

I'm trying to get SSH to work with a non-root user in a VPS Container running CentOS 5.3. But with no luck.
I can log in to root with no problem, but no matter which way I try, I can't log in to any normal users that I make. When I try to log in via SSH, it always fails, and behaves exactly as if though I was entering the wrong password. (I am entering the right one, though, I've make sure of that)

Here I try to log into user "fmain": (with debugging view enabled)

The debugging comments are all the same when I successfully log in to root, except for everything beyond "root@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx's password:" of course.

I checked, and all relevent /devs (on the the remote machine) have 666 privs minimum, so that's not the problem.

The remote machine's /etc/ssh/sshd_config file looks like this: (with comment lines stripped)

I even tried adding "AllowUsers root fmain" to it, and restarting the SSH Daemon, but was no help.

>From my googling, there are plenty of people with the opposite problem (can log in, just not through root). And I tried everything that the few who seemed to have this same problem had done.
I've exhausted my searching options and don't know where to go from here. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for any help that you may be able to provide,
Yarin
