use /etc/pki/pure-ftpd for ssl cert storage

Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2005-08-01 20:26:13 UTC
That makes sense, I've applied the patch. Rebuild underway.

Comment 5 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-08-04 03:57:27 UTC

Do we really need to build pure-ftpd feature complete?  In my case (mostly
anonymous public servers) it would mean to install the mysql and postgres
libraries (among other possible deps).

Yum output:
 pure-ftpd               i386       1.0.20-3.fc4     extras            226 k
Installing for dependencies:
 mysql                   i386       4.1.12-2.FC4.1   updates-released  2.8 M
 perl-DBI                i386       1.48-4           base              571 k
 postgresql-libs         i386       8.0.3-1          base              180 k

Would it be possible to do something like in vim and create the following
packages (package names not mandatory):
  * pure-ftpd-common
  * pure-ftpd-minimal   (minimal features as in pure-ftpd-1.0.20-2.fc3)
  * pure-ftpd-enhanced  (or full) (build feature complete)

Note: it will be tricky to be have both daemons installed (minimal and

Any thoughts,

Comment 6 Aurelien Bompard 2005-08-04 07:55:04 UTC
Well, the problem is that the package can't be split, it's really compilation
options. There can't be a pure-ftpd-common, it's not plugin-based.
At least it only means installing the libs, not the servers...

I'll ask upstream for a plugin system, but it looks to me like pure-ftpd was
designed for FreeBSD.

If someone has another option...

Comment 7 Ronny Buchmann 2005-08-04 17:35:33 UTC
Principally the package could be split, but that would mean conflicting packages
(or an even bigger mess), I'm not sure if this would be acceptable for extras.

 utilities, docs

 daemon (minimal compile options)

 daemon (feature complete)


to comment5:
Jose, why don't you use vsftpd?

Comment 8 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-08-04 19:52:59 UTC
Reply to  question of comment #7

Because I have been using it since since version 0.9x (0.97 or 0.99: don't
remember which) and it fulfilled all my needs (and was much easier to setup than
wu_ftpd or proftpd). Also IIRC vsftpd only appeared several years later.
