You can tell everyone about this web site.
And of course, if you have a tutorial about a Linux topic, you can post it on HowtoForge, and you can try to help others in this forum.
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:
Code:
# 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.
# STANDALONE_OR_INETD=standalone
STANDALONE_OR_INETD=standalone

# 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/uploadhandler.pl
UPLOADSCRIPT=

# if set, pure-uploadscript will spawn $UPLOADSCRIPT running as the
# given uid and gid
UPLOADUID=
UPLOADGID=
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:
Code:
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:
Code:
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.

I guess I can now say that this thread is closed.

The Mail Server is now up and running. SpamAssassin and Amavis is really working great, I have lessen the spam mails to my users.

Thanks for the great tutorial. The same server was also configured with:
1. Virtual Hosting with PureFTPd and MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management)
2. Chrooted SSH
