Software to upload pages to Apache server


I need to know what software package I need to install to allow me to upload web pages to my Apache servers via FTP. When I had my sites hosted I could use CuteFTP (on a windows machine)pro to log into my sites and manage files from anywhere. The only info that my searches have netted me all seem to relate to ananymous FTP and thats not what I'm after. Or is it the same thing that I just have to configure different. I am totally new to web servers and FTP (obviously) so please point me down the right path. My servers are RH7.3/Apache 1.2 and RH8.0/Apache2 if it makes any difference.

Thanks

A good ftp client for Linux is gFTP. It's included in the RedHat 8 disks. You may already have it installed...

Looking back at tis post, I think I probably phrased this wrong. I'm not looking for a client, I need FTP software for the server so that I can connect wih a client like Gftp or cute ftp pro. Gftp is what I was using to manage my sites when I had them remotely hosted. I have been playing around a bit and have installed proFTPD. Problem is that I dont have a clue how to configure it. I have it doing something but not what I want. I think I need to figure out how to set up user acounts because I can get a login box but thats as far as I can get.

Well, another option is to use vsftpd (again, it's on the redhat disks) which may or may not be easier to configure depending on your needs.

Here's a link (includes docs...):

To make ProFTPD work for you, you'll wanna check out the config file /etc/proftpd.conf

There are numerous settings in there, most of them are fairly straight forward. I do believe you'll need to create an FTP user and group to own the files for anonymous use, if you desire that. Anyway, once you get the conf file setup to your likings, as root, run proftpd to start the server.

Cool
