View Full Version : FTP Questions

May 18th, 2005, 09:29 AM
I'm interested in knowing more about how FTP works in correlation with the gallery. Is there a document with a more specific overview?

Some of my initial questions are:

- Is an independently running FTP daemon required?
- If so, does that mean an ftp account is needed for each user?
- Can ftp uploading be restricted by user group?

Thats a start...

1. it does require some ftpd or other method of putting the files into that directory.

Thanks Zachery.

I'm not currently running an ftpd - I'm using SSH only ftp connections for my server work.

Can anyone recommend a good ftp daemon which can be secured to block anonymous connections and keep users restricted to a specific root dir?

Im using pure-ftp via cpanel. Not sure what ftpd's are out there really. I am guessing you are on linux?

Correct - redhat 9. Virtual server which I gutted (it came with plesk) so now everything is CLI. I'll check out pureftpd, thanks!
