    i switched from vftp to proftp because vftp stopped working and people here were suggesting that i should switch to proftp.

    i installed proftp as mentioned in your perfect setup guides but now i do have 2 Major problems

    - The server is now slow as hell, its impossible to upload/download via ftp cause of the connection to the server. And also the pages are loading very slow.

    - Major Problem Nr. 2. If someone logs into the server via ftp they can see everything on it on the server including the system and all.

    Please help ;_;

    Edit: sorry if this is the wrong board. mods feel free to move it please

    Please add tehse lines to your proftpd.conf file:

    DefaultRoot ~
    IdentLookups off
    UseReverseDNS off
    ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."

    right before the line:

    Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf

    This is also described in the perfects etup guides for every linux distribution that you find on the ISPConfig documentation page.

    What is slow, the connect or the data transfer speed?

    IdentLookups off
    UseReverseDNS off

    What's in /etc/proftpd.conf? Any errors in your log files?
    What's in /etc/resolv.conf?
