    Webmin is not a full control panel by any means. If you are a newbee it is impretive for your sake and for the stability of your VPS that you purchase Plesk/CPanel/Directadmin for an additional $5/month.

    CentOS does not provide proftpd in its reprository, you have to manually install it or an easier way is to add the repo location where proftpd is updated, follow my instructions:

    go in /etc/yum.repos.d and open the file CentOS-Base.repo and add this to the bottom of the file:

    name=Jason's Utter Ramblings Repo
    name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    The first repo utterrambling is from, the guy maintaining this is cool to setup this and provide us with last apache 2.2.6 php 5.2.5 for example :)

    The second one is a redhat one compatible with CentOS wich as much more updated stuffs. (this one has proftpd 1.3.1)

    Import GPG keys to check packages validity

    [B]rpm --import[/B]  
    [B]rpm --import [/B][B][/B]
    Then simply type yum install proftpd and it will automatically install the last version, I'd recommand you to yum update, this will update automaticaly mysql apache php to your latest version, make sure theses packages are not in the exclusion list of your yum.conf so.

    Hope it helps, I'm doing this on my VPS, works like a charm, remember webmin does not install packages, you must install them with yum first and then webmin helps a lot configuring them.

    I will do a full post because this is interesting instructions I have found on the web.

    //edit: made a full post there if you want to bookmark it as a reminder you're welcome :)
