Configuring VSFTPD to use storage disks
I have a Debian 4.0 machine running on an HP ProLiant DL380 hardware platform which is intended for use as a Secure FTP Server (upload and download). The Server has five 72GB hot swap SCSI disks which I configured in two arrays - the system partition is on two of the disks mirrored RAID 1
and during setup I set the Debian installer to user the entire disk, this being the first logical drive.
I configured the remaining three drives on a second RAID 5 array which combine to form a logical disk of about 200GB.
I installed and configured VSFTPD, created and installed a Certificate, and tested Secure FTP connection from my XP Workstation using WinSCP3.
So far everything works great.
Now, what I would like to do, is configure VSFTPD to use the 200GB logical drive for all the FTP activity/storage etc. rather than the default which I believe is under /var.
I suspect I must first configure the Server to mount this logical disk? How would I do that so it is always available when the machine boots up etc.? Next, where (how, what parameters) in the vsftpd.conf file do I configure the value to direct the user logins to the respective directory on the storage partition?
