    Question ProFTP or PureFTP ?

    Just wondering which FTP daemon everyone uses here. PureFTP used to be good until they have the gay "temp file" feature while uploading. It screws up my uploads due to the temp file, and you have to wait like a minute before you could delete it and resume.

    I'm using ProFTP now but the time offset is not showing correctly for some odd reason. So, which daemon is better, what are the pros and cons??

    Is this the feature you speak of?

    # When a file is uploaded and there is already a previous version of the file
    # with the same name, the old file will neither get removed nor truncated.
    # Upload will take place in a temporary file and once the upload is complete,
    # the switch to the new version will be atomic. For instance, when a large PHP
    # script is being uploaded, the web server will still serve the old version and
    # immediatly switch to the new one as soon as the full file will have been
    # transfered. This option is incompatible with virtual quotas.

    # NoTruncate yes


    Or is there something else?

    I disabled that, restarted pureftp but it still makes the temporary file whenever I upload. It causes many problems for ftp users.

    For my part I use proFTPD.
    I have no problem with it.
    You can also link proftp authentification with MySQL database. I don't know if it's possible with pureFTP.

    Prodtp is generally preferred as it is easy to configure multiple virtual FTP servers with proftp. At the same time it is easy to administer the proftp daemon.

    i use proftpd as its v. configurable, and i can have half my users authenticating via a database (which is linked into a control panel, mail system etc) and the other half authenticating via the /etc/passwd file

    also if you ever need any help ive found the people in #proftpd on irc.freenode v. helpful..

    I use vsftpd

    If I can using Cpanel, Pure-ftpd. It's serves it purpose well and is nifty. And since everything is configured by Cpanel for virtual host, there's little to worry about. Never needed to custom tweak the virtual host for anyone.

    On a plain vanilla, vsftpd. Simply the most secure and best performing FTPd and is available by default on Redhat. (and several other distros)

    I use Pure-FTP on all of my cPanel servers,
    It's simply faster and more secure.
