I have followed the Perfect Server Ubuntu 9.10/ISPConfig 3 tutorial and everything works just fine. I am also wanting to use the Virtual Hosting with PureFTPd and MySQL on Ubuntu 9.10 tutorial (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-ho...on-ubuntu-9.10
) on the same machine for exclusive ftp access. That works as well but I only know how to run pureftpd once with the respective mysql.conf for each setup and have been swapping them out and restarting pureftp to confirm both do in fact work.
So, is there a way that I can achieve this without too much hassle? I like the ability to control user accounts securely via mysql with the Virtual Hosting tutorial, limiting to just one local system account, but also want ftp access (obviously) on the web-hosting side AND would like to keep them completely separate. I'm not an advanced Linux user but from what I can tell it looks like I would only need a script to run pureftpd with separate mysql databases and configure different ports for each instance maybe? I have a second NIC on the server so multiple IP's would probably be the safest option as to not change ports on users.
Any help is appreciated!
