 Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL

This tutorial describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This performs much better and allows you to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.

For the administration of the MySQL database you can use web based tools like phpMyAdmin which will also be installed in this howto. phpMyAdmin is a comfortable graphical interface which means you do not have to mess around with the command line.
