vsftpd in CentOS


Hello,

I'm running CentOS 5.3.

I need a newer version of vsftpd because of an SSL issue present in versions earlier than 2.0.7. I am able to successfully compile vsftpd 2.2.0 from source with tcpwrappers, pam, and SSL support but when I attempt to start it via a service vsftpd start, it hangs at "Starting vsftpd for vsftpd:" and I do not receive any errors to stdout or to anything in /var/log.

I found only tutorial how i can compile ProFTPD in forum CentOS.

Any ideas?

Why dont you just update using the package system?
If there are real issues and those are fixed it is possible that these issues are backported.
You are asking about vsftpd and are talking about proftpd?
Why do you mention it?
