Just to make sure that I understand correctly: if all I want the server to be used for is an FTP server (no mail, web or any other fancy stuff) all I need to install is apache2, PHP, MySQL, ProFTP and phpMyAdmin right?

And after that's set and done secure the server using some of the HowTos I can find here.

You only need ProFTPd and MySQL. Apache and PHP aren't needed at all, only if you want to install phpMyAdmin.

Hey there!

I´ve used the Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL How to, to switch to virtual hosting.

Umm my thoughts are, how secure is it?
In fact, the user decides where the homepath will be, but if a user will get shell access he will be able to access all the pathes where ftpuser has access.
Any way to make it more secure? Or do we have to live with this?

THanks a lot, and a really nice How-To!

bye

Virtual users cannot have shell access. Only system users can.

Hi!

Ummm the ftpuser is an system user.
The DB users are virual users, right, but they all use the ftpuser for acces i think. Every file which is uploaded is created with the user ftpuser.
And nearly any ftp tool shows you the owner of the uploaded ftp file.

That was my thoughts.

But then somebody would have to log in as the user ftpuser - and ftpuser should not have shell access.

Did you install the proftpd-mysql package?
Any errors in the log files?
