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!

Ive been running ProFTPD a long time now and i think its great, so i made a GUI called GProFTPD for the standalone version.

Thanks for a great server everyone.

easier configuration? the current config style is

very nice. if you need GUI to

configure something as important from the security

point of view as a ftpd is, you

shouldn't be running one. proftpd seems to be

safer than eg. wu-ftpd, but we don't

need any more badly managed ftp servers in the

inet that end up getting owned because the admin

has no idea what's going on in system.

thanks for the proftpd team for a truly amazing ftpd.

Another maintainer has volunteered to take over the ongoing fixes and development of the sql modules. We're hoping to get the security issues addressed so they can be included in 1.2.0-final (2-3 weeks time)
