Proftpd + MySQL _ symbolic link dir. not accessable
Thank for the great FTP service!

I've just configured the chrooted ftp server in combination with Mysql for authentication.

Only one thing that I can't get to work is symbolic link directories to show up in the directorie list.

I get the error:

550 /data: Too many levels of symbolic links

What i did was from the ftp home dir going to a dir that was created with ls -s /data /blabla/data

Does somebody got an answer to my problem?

hope so :)

fast installation - easy and powerful configuration
Very fast compilation and installation (tried on RedHat 7.2).
Configuration really powerful and intuitive. I'm satisfied with it.
Many thanks to developers! Go like this.

Thank you for a great FTP daemon!
I must say that ProFTPd is bar-none the best FTP daemon I have used.
It is the only FTP daemon I've seen that can gracefully withstand a harsh connect flood without dying.
(rain -t localhost -p 21 --connect)
Keep up the good work!
