HELP! need proftpd.conf for single user ftp
firstly, sorry if this is in the wrong place :/

suse 9 proftpd

need a proftpd.conf example for just one user. only for my own access to allow a webcam image to be uploaded to a specific folder. no anonymous access etc. believe me i have tried with the webmin, but the headache is starting to emerge ://

i'm also having problems even starting proftpd (failed to start ftp server : sh : line 1 : /etc/init.d/proftpd - no such file or directory) this is default install with YaST

any n00b help out there?
