If lots of people do this, then there will be lots of stuff to come from this site...
Yes, I already shared this site with our university faculties who are teaching networking and linux os. And also to other students and other people who ask me anything bout linux os.

I have already setup the server using the one mentioned on the tutorial on the production side using a class 'a' private ip and resides behind a firewall, antivirus and antispam "fortinet fortigate" hardware and it is running smooth. I have also installed my redundant web server on it, and the "chroot ssh". Now, I am trying to install the "Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd...", which I have a query...

I installed the Virtual Hosting on a test environment and i never encountered an error, so i decided to install it to the production server (mentioned above). But when I installed pure-ftpd-mysql, i accidentally chose 'inetd' instead of 'standalone' when i was ask whether to run the server on what environment. Nevertheless, i continued the process, and thinking of just search for the configuration file and change it there manually. After the installation of pure-ftpd-mysql, i searched for the configuration file, which i found one /etc/default/pure-ftpd-common:
# Configuration for pure-ftpd
# (this file is sourced by /bin/sh, edit accordingly)

# STANDALONE_OR_INETD: valid values are "standalone" and "inetd".
# Any change here overrides the setting in debconf.

# UPLOADSCRIPT: if this is set and the daemon is run in standalone mode,
# pure-uploadscript will also be run to spawn the program given below
# for handling uploads. see /usr/share/doc/pure-ftpd/README.gz or
# pure-uploadscript(8)

# example: UPLOADSCRIPT=/usr/local/sbin/

# if set, pure-uploadscript will spawn $UPLOADSCRIPT running as the
# given uid and gid
I changed 'inetd' to 'standalone', then i proceeded with the rest of the configuration. Afterwhich i tested FTP'ing from a client workstation, but I get this message:
Can't exec "/usr/sbin/pure-ftpd": No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper line 174.
I then un-install the pure-ftpd:
apt-get remove pure-ftpd-**
apt-get clean pure-ftpd-**
apt-get autoclean pure-ftpd-**
I used the wildcards, so that all pure-ftpd files will be removed. I also deleted all other files and directories with pure-ftpd-** manually.

After this, i re-installed pure-ftpd-mysql. On the process of re-installing, I was never ask on what environment the pure-ftpd would run, and whether pure-ftpwho should be installed using root setuid. I continued on with the tutorial and tested ftp'ing, but still I get the same error as that mentioned above... I don't know, what else should I do....

hope you can help me out on this again....

thanks in advance.
