Configure error
Authored by: dchambon on Apr 09, '02 04:00:49AM

I'vve dowloaded (as explained with curl) proftpd 1.2.4 in a folder without spaces (/Applications/Proftpd-1.2.4) but here is the message I obtain after trying to configure :

[dchambon:/Applications/proftpd-1.2.4] dchambon% ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
checking target system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
checking build system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... cc
checking whether the C compiler (cc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

my configuration is :

G4/512 Mo - Mac OS X Server 10.1.3 + Developper tools

Can you help me ?
Do you think I can use proftpd 1.2.5rc1 ?

go to versiontracker, select OS x

search for proFTPd, and d/l it

it is a pre built binary. to configure it for X. you can either:

run it as a replacement, to change the port number go to netinfo manager, authenitacte yourself and then choose services, fine FTP and change port to whatever and MAKE SURE u change the FTP-DATA port as well. It shuuld be FTP port -1 ie, ftp port on 5000, ftp data port = 4999

this should solve all your probs., ;)
