    It's a dummy question, I know, but the forum is "New user questions" :)

    Where can I configure welcome message for ftp connections?

    Thx & cheers!

    It's for a single account, and for annonymous users. I'd like to change welcome message for all users on my dedi box (existant and new accounts I'll create).

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're using pure-ftpd then you have to recompile it by hand changing the message (see the pure-ftpd site). It's a real pain, as it's tricial to do if you use proftpd.

    Is there any special reason for not switching to Pro-Ftpd?
    I was considering this option, so if you advice me to switch to PRO, could you explain how to set welcome message then?

    The reason why I want to change this message is that all my clients are from Serbia, and I'd love to have the message in their native language.

    pure-ftpd has proven to have a smaller resource footprint. proftpd has had some high profile security issues of late, though it is by far more configurable that pure-ftpd. The last time I checked cPanel hadn't implemented a quota system for proftpd either (though one exists), which pure-ftpd has.
