Postfix Virtual Hosting With LDAP Backend And With Dovecot As IMAP/POP3 Server On Ubuntu Kamic Koala 9.10 - Page 7

Step 9: Install and configure proftpd

First we will install proftpd and its requirements:

aptitude install proftpd proftpd-mod-ldap

Depending on your load you can decide between stand alone and inet.d.

Edit /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf:

vi /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf

And change from:

# Use this to jail all users in their homes
# DefaultRoot                   ~

To:

# Use this to jail all users in their homes
DefaultRoot                   ~

Now edit /etc/proftpd/modules.conf:

vi /etc/proftpd/modules.conf

And change from:

# Install proftpd-mod-ldap to use this
#LoadModule mod_ldap.c

To:

# Install proftpd-mod-ldap to use this
LoadModule mod_ldap.c

And from:

# Install proftpd-mod-ldap to use this
# LoadModule mod_quotatab_ldap.c

To:

# Install proftpd-mod-ldap to use this
LoadModule mod_quotatab_ldap.c 

No edit /etc/proftpd/ldap.conf and set the following:

<IfModule mod_ldap.c>
   
   AuthOrder       mod_ldap.c
   AuthPAM         off
   LDAPUseTLS                      off
   PersistentPasswd                off
   LDAPServer                      127.0.0.1
   LDAPDNInfo                      cn=abook,dc=webhabitat,dc=be readonly
   LDAPDoAuth                      on "dc=webhabitat,dc=be" # (&(uid=%u)(objectclass=posixAccount))

</IfModule>

Now restart postfix and your domain postmasters created in phamm can login to their home directories. Note not the email accounts.

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

This concludes the complete how to.
