    I have been having a hard time getting ProFTPD to work on a clean install (My previous post: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=435&highlight=proftpd).

    I installed CentOS with minimal configuration and installed ProFTPD from Dag Wieers RPM repository for APT and still could not get it working. As soon as I continued with the install (following this guide - http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=470), ProFTPD worked.

    What changes does ISPConfig make to get ProFTPD to work? Or what else is installed in the setup to get ProFTPD to authenticate?

    It just adds
    Code:
    Include /etc/proftpd_[IP_ADDRESS].conf
    to /etc/proftpd.conf (and creates the included file... ;) ).

    So... what exactly does that do? How is that critical to ProFTPD's fuctionality?

    It just adds functionality so that Anonymous FTP is available for _each_ IP address on the server.
