I am looking for software to automate username/passwords for my webserver/ftp server, so that I don't have to spend a lot of time setting that up. I have an FTP server, and I am running Apache for my webserver. Are there any scripts/software that I can use to automate this process?
what i want to do is have a script that will create an account/passwd with only ftp rights on the linux box and with write permissions to only write to their home directory. i also want it to create the directories itself...kind of like if you sign up with, say, tripod. and all of this takes place from a signup form on the website.
