Getting Apache to spawn FTP listing?

Hi there,

I wondered if there was any easy way to get Apache to spawn a specific FTP server listing, simply by connecting to port 80 instead of port 21 of it. This method is used on, and many others. Can this be configured somewhere? Is it a module? I'm kind of a (big) newbie in this field, so any help is welcome...

Thanks in advance,

You will need to create a virtual host and dns entry eg:

Then make the DocumentRoot for that VirtualHost point to the base of your public ftp directory. Files will need to be readable by the user that your web server runs as (usually apache or nobody). Then just make sure that you have "Indexes" enabled as an "Option" for that directory.

If you have any problems just let me know.
