ProFTPd is not required. If your Galaxy users already have a way to access the
server directly, that access method is fine. You simply need to create a
top-level directory under which you create directories for each user. Then,
set the top level directory as the value of 'ftp_upload_dir' in the config
file, and set 'ftp_upload_site' to something other than the default 'None'.
ftp_upload_dir = /scratch/galaxy/upload
ftp_upload_site = server.example.org
