"As an FTP server, ProFTPD offers several advantages. For
starters it's controlled by a single configuration file. If you
have configured an Apache web server (and what admin hasn't) you'll
be at home with ProFTPD's configuration file. It's also lightweight
and modular, meaning you can add extensions to it, for example to
encrypt file transfers, or hook it up with a directory server.
"The server is available in the official software repositories
of all major distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and
Fedora. You can also grab it from its website and compile it atop
Mac OS X and several BSDs, such as FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD.
"One of the strengths of ProFTPD is its configuration file. On
most distributions you'll find the file under
/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf. Similar to Apache's configuration file,
it contains lines of configuration directives grouped by context.
Before you start editing the configuration, familiarize yourself
with the various configuration directives."
