    Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.

Not for newbies, unless you know already how to make your firewire drive work under Linux (even if you cannot make it boot).The new beta debian etch installer is able to recognize firewire drives, so I succesfully compiled a kernel and installed the bootloader, so that the installing process could complete. Tested with a maxtor one touch and a titanium powerbook v.2

To get a feel for how all this works you can take a gander at the screenshots-page and figure out for yourself if this is the right tool for you.
