How to Install and Set Up ProFTPD With TLS on Ubuntu
ProFTPD is a feature-rich FTP daemon for Linux and Unix-based OSes. Here's how you can set it up on Ubuntu.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a popular lightweight protocol used to transfer files over a network. Although it is an efficient mechanism for the transmission of data, there is one drawback to it: the data is transmitted and received in plain text. This means the data transfer is unencrypted, and it can be compromised.
