A Step By Step Guide On How To Install ProFTPD On FreeBSD
Getting ProFTPD to run on FreeBSD is quite simple and can be done in a few steps. Now before you start you will need to consider this. ProFTPD does not use “Virtual Users” like it’s sister PureFTPD. That means you need to have a “Real User Account” in your master password file on your system for each ftp account. Unlike PureFTPD which is able to use it’s own user database. Also worth mentioning is the fact the ProFTPD has not been translated to all languages which may cause some strange behavior truncating files with international characters.
- cd /usr/ports/ftp/proftpd && make install clean BATCH=yes
Once done we need to adjust the configuration slightly to our needs. The configuration file for Proftp is located here /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf
Change the Server Name. Please note this will have no effect if you are using “ServerIdent Off” So find this line …
In this tutorial, user Matei Cezar shows us how to get the FAMP stack set up on FreeBSD. FAMP stands for FreeBSD, Apache HTTP server, MariaDB, and PHP. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.
This guide will describe how to install and configure FBAMP in FreeBSD operating system, which is similar to a LAMP stack on Linux. FBAMP is an acronym which stands for a collection of software based on FreeBSD OS, Apache HTTP server, the most popular open-source web server in internet, MariaDB relational database management system (RDBMS), a fork of MySQL database engine, and PHP server-side.
- A fresh installation of FreeBSD
- FreeBSD Initial Configurations
- Direct console access or SSH in case of a remote connection to FreeBSD.
- A static IP Address configured on a Network Interface.

Michael Larabel of Phoronix has tried out TrueOS & FreeBSD on a Xeon scalable platform / Tyan GT24E-B7106 1U server. Check out the link below for the results of his test.
While we have tested a number of Linux distributions on Intel’s new Xeon Scalable platform, here are some initial BSD tests using two Xeon Gold 6138 processors with the Tyan GT24E-B7106 1U barebones server.
FreeBSD 11.1 and the FreeBSD-derivative desktop/workstation-focused TrueOS (formerly known as PC-BSD) were the primary candidates for testing. TrueOS stable is currently tracking FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT development. Both TrueOS and FreeBSD 11.1 x64 were running fine on this Tyan + Xeon Gold server. No immediate problems to note and was able to put it through its benchmarking paces without any sweat.
Nevertheless, it’s great to see TrueOS / FreeBSD running fine with the Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and the Tyan GT24E-B7106.
User Matei Cezar goes over 10 things to do after installing FreeBSD on your system, from updating, configuring IPs, to installing the essentials. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.
1. Update FreeBSD System
The first thing every system administrator should perform after a fresh installation of an operating system is to make sure the system is up-to-date with the latest security patches and the latest versions of the kernel, package manager and software packages.
In order to update FreeBSD, open a console in the system with root privileges and issue the following commands.# freebsd-update fetch # freebsd-update install ......
User Allan Chr shows us how to get Qmail-Scanner set up on FreeBSD. Qmail-Scanner scans your emails received from Qmail for viruses and spam, and allows you to configure “policy blocks” on your email server. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.
Step By Step Guide On How To Install Qmail Scanner On FreeBSD
Qmail-Scanner is an application that scans mail received from Qmail and then performs some simple task’s accordingly. This could be reacting to a certain spam threshold set in Spamassassin. Or do other mail manipulation when a virus is detected.
Make sure your perl location is adequate. qmail-scanner, is assuming perl to be located in /usr/bin
- cd /usr/bin
- mv perl perl.old
- ln -s /usr/local/bin/perl perl
If you plan on using qmail-scanner you will need to replace unzip shipped with FreeBSD with a newer version like this ….

HowtoForge shows us how to get a MySQL server set up with phpMyAdmin on FreeBSD. Installing an Apache server is also documented in the process. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.
MySQL is a free and open source relational management system. It stores data in tabular format. It is the most popular way of storing the data into the database. phpMyAdmin is also a free and open source application used to administrate a MySQL server instance through a rich graphical user interface. phpMyAdmin is written in PHP. To install phpMyAdmin, we will also need to install a web server with PHP on FreeBSD.
In this tutorial, we will install MySQL with phpMyAdmin along with Apache web server with PHP 5.6.
- Minimal FreeBSD 11 server.
- Root privileges. This guide is written as the root user, if you are logged in as sudo user, run sudo -i.
Update Base System
Before installing any package it is recommended that you update the packages and repository using the following command…
