should I be concerned at all ? That is, does the VirtualMin environment, similar to httpd, need a special tweaked version of Proftpd ? Or, a specific version or range of releases so the VirtualMin GUI knows how to handle it ?
AND … if a special version is needed, can proftpd in VirtualMin get a bump/upgrade ?
Of course its possible I have made my own errors by possibly installing Proftpd outside the VirtualMin environ, perhaps even before I installed VM at all
sorry I did not fully describe my issues … I am working on configuring sftp (on a non-standard port) using proftpd.
and had some speedbumps along the way … right now I am 99 percent happy, with just a log message from PAM in /var/log/secure upon exiting … I think from the session teardown (which I am leaning towards being cosmetic and something I will just have to live with).
and with the newer .d folder structure to hold local mods seemingly only in the newer versions, as well as the above cosmetic error, led me to look for ways to use the newer proftpd software trees in order to see if they could help in any way.
But again, I am 99 percent happy with what I have so far, so am very close to announcing it to my webhosting clients for their usage.
in regards to INCLUDE, I must have messed up my system at some time in the past as I can’t find any include directives … perhaps if I get some spare time, I will totally uninstall proftpd and re-install it … or just enhance it by hand
is there a CLOSE button, or will this topic close automatically … I think I have learned all I need to know … THANKS again for the quick responses and your insight !!
