A week or so ago I tried to compile vsftpd from source but I wanted to reinstall. I cant recall exactly how I installed it as I can nto find the tutorial I used now, but going off memory the install procedure seemed a bit strange compared to the usual ./configure, make, make install. So I wanted to reinstall using the official INSTALL file instructions this time.
So I ran:
dpkg -r vsftpd
dpkg --purge vsftpd
but I see a few files left over when I run "locate vsftpd" and wanted confirmation it is safe to remove them.
Actually I am confident it is safe to manually remove all of them with the exception of /usr/local/sbin/vsftpd. So is it safe to remove that and reinstall/recompile?
