Yeah, I don't want local user access (SSH, their own entries in passwd,
etc..). Too much work to ensure they all have the correct file
I think I'll just skip the PHP bit and use a proper FTP server. I've
configured them a few times, but all the examples I found only had
Anonymous FTP login, or MySQL (which is what I want), but the server
wouldn't work with the MySQL plugin.
Looks like I'll have to compile from source... joy.
Thanks for all the replies though.

The local users part was about ssh-sftp access Ash not ftp.
IMO when you add local users you add extra risks to your system than
simple ftp (non-local) users may not cause. Of course if you secure
your system carefully everything will work fine but I would avoid that
and there are many security issues that here is not the place to discuss.
Of course if this fits your needs I have no objections.
