    i followed the debian howto, with a newer proftpd version and mysql 5.0.19:

    apt-get -t unstable install mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient15off
    apt-get install proftpd=1.2.10+1.3.0rc5-3 proftpd-mysql=1.2.10+1.3.0rc5-3

    step 4 Configure Proftpd, i got an error:
    /etc/init.d/proftpd restart

    unknown configuration directive 'SQLAuthTypes' on line 3 ...
    # line 3 SQLAuthTypes Crypt

    what is going wrong ? (with the paket proftpd.conf, is the ftp server running.)

    thx magicslider

    Maybe the newer ProFTPd version doesn't know this option anymore. Did you have a look at the ProFTPd changelog on the ProFTPd web site?

    hi falko,

    first, thank you for the howto ! for me as rookie, it was the best of all !
    but i think it only works for mysql versions < 4.1.

    hmm, i can't find anything. maybe the mysql client of version 5 has changed.

    do you know where i can find a howto of compiling proftpd with the new client ?

    or a working howto with mysql >= 4.1 ?

    thx magicslider

    You could try to downgrade to MySQL 4.0 to see if it works then. If it still doesn't work, then the problem is not MySQL.
