View Full Version : [ubuntu] Looking for FTP server with MySQL support for provisioning downloads

Hi guys
Just wondering what you'd advise as an FTP server (which has MySQL authentication support) which will allow me to home various read-only folders in a folder based on user groups.

A user has the ability to upload and create files and folders in their home directory
They can see a folder called "Downloads" and when added to the group "2.0" a new folder called 2.0 is shown in their downloads folder granting access to 2.0 version downloads

Likewise, when 2.1 is released, add the user to the 2.1 group, and then you can see both 2.0 and 2.1 under downloads, where the user only has read access

Neither PureFTPd nor ProFTPd seem to be able to do both
What would you guys recommend, how would be the best way to go about this?
