Simple anonymous ftp server

This time, i just wanted to create an ftp server to share some “read-only” files. If i put these files on a public samba shared, it will easily to be changed. It will not be good if you change a teaching schedule by yourself…not by the authorities.
Next example can be a master report file or master forms.

I just did :

install proftp :=> sudo apt-get install proftpd ucf
activate the anonymous section on the /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
restart proftp :=> sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
Done !!
from web browser :=> ftp://servername/

When i did not activate the anonymous section on proftpd.conf, it seemed like we can open all home folders of that server ( of course this is BAD !! ) even the ftp asked for a password.
