This document describes how to install a Proftpd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota with this setup.

scienceblogs.com: Why is a Linux Distro, and the process of picking one and installing it, a matter of happiness? Well, for one thing, a Distro is a statement, almost a fashion statement. Picking a Distro is like needing a pickup truck deciding to go for some kind of Toyota pickup vs. a Ford vs. a GMC.
blogs.computerworld: I want; I mean I really want, an Apple MacBook Air. If you're a Mac or Windows user you've got several excellent top-of-the-line ultra-thin laptop choices. If you're a desktop Linux user, your choices aren't that great. So far.
Matt Asay: Invitrogen is a billion-dollar supplier to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, with 4,700 employees worldwide and a history of supplying many of the world's leading laboratories in groundbreaking research like the discovery of the AIDS virus.
theregister.co.uk: We joined the Gates trolls during Episode 19 of Open Season. In this show, we honored Gates's exit from Microsoft with a little game called "Kermit the Frog or Bill." The game revolves around audio clips from both characters. All you have to figure out is who's talking.
celettu.wordpress: After my review of do-it-yourself-Arch, I wanted to test a distro with a totally different philosophy, one that aims to give you a complete desktop system from the start. Pardus is a relatively new kid on the block, but it has been gathering positive reviews. These are my impressions.
aardvark.co.nz: Microsoft have, as of today, withdrawn sales of Windows XP through retailers and major PC manufacturers. But this raises a question for which I have no answer.. Where the hell is Linux? Where was the "Upgrade to Linux" campaign?
phoronix.com: Today, Adobe has pushed out a new beta for Adobe Flash Player 10, adding support for the Flash windowless mode "wmode", Video 4 Linux 2 (V4L2) support for web cameras with Flash, new language support, improved speed, and improved stability.
sourceforge.net: After much tallying, number crunching, and crossing out bogus nominations, we are proud to announce the finalists of the 2008 SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards.
zdnet.com.au: The de facto registrar of superlative achievements has credited Mozilla for officially setting a record for downloads in a 24-hour period: 8,002,530 copies of Firefox.
The IBM AIX operating system has kept to what's important: stability, functionality, robustness. And it has done it by keeping a strong command-line interface (CLI). If you never learned to use the CLI or need a refresher on its basics, read on.
Glyn Moody: One of the most surprising recent developments in the field of openness has been the rise of Europe as a key player there. This is not the result of some grand plan, despite what the conspiracy theorists in proprietary software companies might think, but simply a natural evolution.

sharplinux.blogspot: I've talked so far about software freedom as in speech and as in beer. Today my topic is the kind of "free" that people view as a burden, the example being "free kittens." This is the meaning of "free" that keeps many regular, reasonable computer users from adopting.
raiden.net: Being an avid fan of aircraft and flight (ref: extreme high performance flying), one of the things that has always caught my interest was the ever improving design of aircraft, engines and avionics. Linux has become quite the integral part of the aviation industry these days, so much so that in some respects, Tux has grown wings.
blog.laptopmag: If Eee mania hasn’t set in yet, it’s about to. Earlier this week pictures of the Eee PC 903, 904, and 905 were leaked. Joining these “unofficial” pictures of new Eee PCs are some shots of the Eee Monitor. Based on the photos, we’re wondering whether this is actually a monitor or a new all-in-one PC or a rip off of the iMac.
blogs.linux.org.bd: One of the annoying features of reading several planets, is that you end up reading entries from people you otherwise respect, who seem to have various complexes about nonsensical issues. We all saw the month in which half of Debian decided it was cool to rip on Ubuntu, and now apparently it's the new cool thing to do if you work on Fedora.
