Several serverish questions. . . Sendmail config, IRC, FTP. . .

Well, I tried searching for the answers to these already in specifically the Debian forum, but the search spent 10 minutes searching, and never showed me results, even when I tried it several times. So now I'm posting 3 questions.

1. How do I need Sendmail configured on Debian to allow phpBB, or other PHP scripts to automatically send topic replt notifications, or e-mails about how to activate your accounts and such. I have Sendmail installed already, but I can't find any documentation on how to configure it on a Debian server.

2. What would you reccomend for an IRC server?

3. What would you reccomend for an FTP server, and I want it to be so that I can allow certain users access to only their folder on my server.

Thank You in advance.

I don't use any of the following programs except vsftpd. However, I'll give this one a shot.

1. I don't know how you need sendmail configured, but configuring it shouldn't be debian-specific. I would check out sendmail documentation. If you're looking for the config files, the generic debian way I use to find them is to type "dpkg -L packagename | grep /etc" - this shows all the files with "/etc" in the name, which should be all the configuration files except those for a specific user (which are stored in the user's home directory).

2. "apt-cache search irc server | grep serv" shows ircd-irc2 as the original IRC daemon

3. I believe vsftpd "very secure ftp daemon" is one of if not the most security-conscious ftp daemon around. I'd try installing / reading up on / configuring that.

Good luck!
