    FTP for IP Based Accounts -> ftpuser

    Is there some reason that DirFakeGroup and DirFakeUser are used with FTP on IP based accounts? They can be removed easily, I'd just rather they not be setup to begin with.

    Which bring up the question, why not have some kind of template system for proftpd.conf & httpd.conf files so that we could tell the system to add accounts with certain lines and without certain lines?

    Justin,

    Please refresh my memory, what do these 2 settings do?

    Regards,

    Not much really. For IP based accounts if you have an FTP program that shows the owner and/or group, they'll show up as ftpuser or ftpgroup instead of the actual owner. I don't see much point in it.

    Not something I personally mind, but a couple of the users got a little hyped thinking all their files belonged to someone else. All that has to be done is to remove the lines in the proftpd.conf file that say that, but I would rather it just not be added in the first place.

    OK, thanks Justin.

    & why not have some kind of template system for proftpd.conf & httpd.conf files

    Something useful to consider.

    Regards,
