    I followed the CentOS 5.2 Perfect Server Installation guide...well kinda...
    The only places I differ were on the ProFTPd installation instructions and mod_ruby.

    1.) I used the RPMForge.net repo for ProFTPd install.
    2.) I have no need to support mod_ruby at the moment but may consider it in the future so I skipped it.

    I do not like to manually compile and install software, modules, or kernels...I dont have the time to keep track of bug fixes and patches.

    I am having a few issues, which I have determined are not necessarily related specifically to this particular configuration. (experiencing it on a CentOS 5.2 @home file server running vsftpd)

    My ISPConfig/users cannot FTP at all (not even from the web-ftp! Only when offered shell access can they at least SFTP... Additionally they can venture from their home folder and access other people's webs.

    I can post configs, just let me know what you'd like to see... I will post the proftpd.conf in the morning once i wake up. Thanks for all your help!

    Please reconfigure the proftpd.conf file on your system as described in the centos perfect serverr howto.

    I recommend to just use the default vsftpd on CentOS, it works just fine without any alteration. (I did very few to tighten the timeout limits a bit, that's all.)
