Default Quick question about snakeoil key.

Hi - when I am installing a new system with ftp (TLS) the directory
/etc/ssl/private/
already exists and contains:
ssl-cert-snakeoil.key

In the past when I run
mkdir /etc/ssl/private the directory and it's contents are overwritten

Might this be the cause of FTP server showing offline on a new install?

I have had fewer problems since not creating the directory but I'd like to know what the ssl-cert-snakeoil.key is used for.

Thanks

The snakeoil cert is the default ssl cert for services that use ssl in the linux distribution like the apache default ssl vhost (see file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl).

Never seen this on my Debian Servers yet, its always online after I installed ISPconfig. Which Linux distribution do you use?
