Today i installed PureFTPd on FreeBSD 5.3 server.
make install clean
It show a text based menu with options like LDAP, MySQL PAM, PGSQL, etc… Only PAM is checked by default.
I do not select anything other than the default PAM as i am not going to use them on this server. On this server, i will be the FTP only user, i only need the PAM. I will be login with insecure “root” account for FTP as i get full control when i FTP 🙂
Now the pureftpd got installed.
This port has installed the following startup scripts which may cause these network services to be started at boot time.
With the pure-ftpd.sh in rc.d folder, pureftpd will auto start on system boot.
But FTP server doesn’t start. May be it need a reboot before start working.
Worked fine. i found i need to
# Add the following lines to /etc/rc.conf to enable pure-ftpd:
But i decided not to do that now as why should i run FTP on a server that only i will use ? For now, i will login to server and enable FTP when i need to use FTP.
