The install conflicts if you already have certificates and DH params files.

Wouldn't it be better to check if certificates and DH params files already exists and generate new files rather that providing secret keys and always the same dh params with the package ?
That way the user can provide its own Common Name to match his FQDN.

I try it in my local variant built with --ldap
- removed the line "install -Dm640 -t ${pkgdir}/etc/ssl/private/ ${srcdir}/pure-ftpd.pem ${srcdir}/pure-ftpd-dhparams.pem" from the PKGBUILD

- and added a pure-ftpd.install :
if [ ! -e /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd-dhparams.pem ];then
echo "Generating new DH params"
openssl dhparam -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd-dhparams.pem 2048
chmod 0600 /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem

if [ ! -e /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem ]; then
echo "You need to place a certificate and its key in /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem to start TLS enabled pure-ftpd"
echo "You can generate a self signed certificate with the following command :"
echo "openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -sha256 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem"
echo "Note: The Common Name (CN) should be the same as the FQDN of the server."
echo "Note2: Remember to chmod 0600 the generated certificate."

If you experience problems downloading the source file from the FTP server given in PKGBUILD, try the following (worked for me as of today):

I'm sorry for the delay bin issue. We have terrible flood in the central Europe. My comp is in a flooded house. If someone want to adopt the package I will disown it. Or wait till next week.

Arch is moving all binaries to /usr/bin.
Please fix this package.

this package was flagged out-of-date.
I don`t see newer version then 1.36

alexandernst commented on 2013-03-22 14:36

Can you compile this with --with-quotas , please?

abbradar commented on 2012-11-18 15:21

Please fix .service file; it looks for /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf but our config is in /etc/pure-ftpd.conf
