ProFTPD vs PureFTPD
Up to now I have always used ProFTPD mostly because I'm used to it.
Now a friend of mine suggested that I should use PureFTPD but he could not explain why.
Now my question is.
What is the difference? (pros and cons)
Is it worth switching?
Thanks in advanced,
I would say dump both and use vsftpd, both have long histories of security vulnerabilities.
If you're using system users, you could use vsftpd, proftpd, or pureftpd - I don't see many differences between the three (except maybe vulnerabilities, but AFAIK, there haven't been any in the past few months, but I might be wrong). If you want to install ISPConfig 2, then you must use proftpd.
If you want to use virtual users from a MySQL database, then use proftpd or pureftpd - vsftpd does not support this natively. If you want to install ISPConfig 3, you must use pureftpd (proftpd might be supported in a later version).
