This is probably a bit stupid, but I've been having issues getting any
of the good FTP servers running on my Ubuntu 6.06 (LTS) box.
I've tried Pro-FTP, Pure-FTP, and briefly installed some others, but the
versions available for my distro don't seem to support MySQL (or I'm
simply doing something wrong).
Anyway, I had the thought that the FTP server won't be used much, as I
mainly use SSH, however I need to be able to give other people access,
which is why I'm wondering if there are any PHP scripts that can be used
AS an FTP server. That is, I'd setup Apache to accept on the standard
FTP port(s), and get it to point everything to a PHP script, which I
could then use to pull user/pass details each of which would have their
own directories, allowing each user to access a sym-link to their
domain(s) log file, website directory, and anything else.
Has someone already got a script that does this (at least accepting FTP
connections), or is this a crazy idea that's just not possible?
Should I just compile the latest version of some FTP server, and try and
configure that to do what I want instead?
