    I'm not sure symlink are fully supported, they are a high security risk for a FTP server anyway so i really don't recommend them even if you can get them to work. You can reach the same goal mounting a directory in another one (see first) post, it is fully supported and less risky.

    ok, will check out mounting /var/www/forums to /home/FTP-shared/upload/forum but are my limits or what have you ok? I mean, is there an easier way to do it instead of limit, then list everything, then AllowAll? thanks

    The other way to do it would be not to use /home/FTP-shared/.... directories in your config file but /var/www/forums directory (think to put it as home dir for your ftp user), i think most users using the FTP server for their website do it this way.

    For the LIMIT section i don't really know what to answer, there might be an easier way i guess, in my example i listed all i wanted to deny and all i wanted to allow to be sure of what is restricted and what is not.

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    Hi, thank you all the valuable information you have shared in this thread. Is there someone who can explain how the passive ports works and why isn't it enough with one port? Another question, why do we have to use MasqueredeAddress when the ftp server is behind a router? I have followed some advises from this thread so this isn't any problem for me (at the moment ), I'm just curious how all this stuff works and the information at proftpd.org was quite small?

    i cant seem to get a second user created. i set it up exactly like the first one but it just doesnt work. i logged into my ubuntu with the user and it worked just fine, however i get a 530 login error trying to login to the ftp server with this user. userftp works fine. website does not. i mounted /var/www to the upload directory. everything for website looks the same as userftp..anyone have any ideas as to what im doing wrong? below is my .conf

    You can specify the port number
    ftp://www.mywebsite.com:21/

    or a folder
    ftp://www.mywebsite.com:21/myfolder

    or user name
    ftp://username@www.mywebsite.com:21/
