Use of Mysql with Proftpd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
Proftpd can't run when mysql is configured with it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add mysql configuration to the proftpd.conf file
2.Run the proftpd daemon . The daemon won't run.
Impossible to connect to localhost ftp server
Proftpd with mysql should work
Maybe proftpd was not compiled with mysql support
Indeed, it is compiled without mysql, postgresql and ldap. The reason was that
it used to mean adding dependencies to all of these libraries even if all that
was needed was a very basic ftp setup, so they could be optionally enabled at
Since recent proftpd releases support DSOs, I've recompiled 1.3.0 final with
mysql, postgresql and ldap modules in 3 sub-packages, which are optional. It
will be built for devel very soon, then backported to FC-5. All you'll need to
do is update your proftpd package and install the new proftpd-mysql sub-package.
The new packages are now also built for FC-5 and should be available very soon.
