Hello. I have small questions about the division of processes of pure-ftpd-mysql. I did use this tutorial partly. My pure runs on a debian box as a stand-alone server. Code: root@server:/# top | grep pure 32132 root 16 0 7416 776 412 S 0 0.0 0:00.00 pure-ftpd All users are in my mysql database available. I set a MYSQLDefaultUID/GID (pure,ftp) for all virtual users... root is _not_ able to login! If I connect with any (virtual)user to pure I can watch the following: Code: root@vs241011:/etc# ps afuxww | grep pure root 32132 0.0 0.0 7416 776 ? Ss 11:23 0:00 pure-ftpd (SERVER) pure 26096 0.0 0.0 7464 1728 ? S 11:38 0:00 \_ pure-ftpd (IDLE) root 26097 0.0 0.0 7424 532 ? S 11:38 0:00 \_ pure-ftpd (PRIV) You can find my pure-ftpd.conf here: http://pastebin.com/sYu4S44r And my pure-ftpd_mysql.conf: http://pastebin.com/zJRLKYLJ I hope someone knows what the second root user is doing there and why it is subordinated user pure, because I didnt find documentations or s.th. like this about the pure processes!?
