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

    I'm thinking about a new howto or an improvement of this one for newbies (and this will be only for newbies !). Because proftpd has a GUI called Gproftpd but i generally don't advice it because you need to run it as root and you can easily break your server configuration or create a unsecure ftp server, however i think newbies will prefer this way (less secure but more userfriendly).

    So, please could someone test this GUI and give me his personnal opinion about it in order to help me to know if i should advice it for newbies and create a small guide for it ?

    Thanks for helping me to estimate this way to use proftpd.

    here are the website link and a screenshot at the bottom of the post :
