Getting it all together
Authored by: Moo0 on Mar 09, '02 04:38:18PM

first, download the patch using wget - not explorer or the like. It will mess up the file.

don't make the mistake I did - DO change the user/group proftpd is running on in the proftpd.conf file, as the default ones will not work :)

Second of all: if you want to deny 1 or more users access to ftpd, simply state this in your proftpd.conf file:
<limit all>
DenyUser mysql, www, otheruser, etc
</limit>

this could be handy in case you have provided the mysql and/or www users a password.

Did you get proFTPd to compile under OS X 10.1.3? If so, I and a coupla other folks would love to know how... (if the patch you're referencing fixes our make problems, I'd love to see that stated :)

yes, I did. MacOS X 10.1.3, G4 667, running perfect so far!

I simply downloaded the source, applied the patch, compiled and installed.
I changed the proftpd.conf to my needs - and voila!

B&W G3 350, OS X 10.1.3, 576 MB RAM

No luck in compiling this. I get the same errors others have reported. Is there a hardware issue here? Despite patching the source and following all the suggestions in this discussion the thing simply fails to compile.

Anyone have a binary distribution of this that they could make available?
