ProFTPD + MySQL + MD5 Passwords

If you’re using ProFTPD with virtual users (sql) and want to use md5-hashed passwords in sql table, uncomment this line in modules.conf:

LoadModule mod_sql_passwd.c

And edit sql.conf relevant lines like:

SQLAuthTypes MD5
SQLPasswordEngine on
SQLPasswordEncoding hex

And don’t forget to change password areas to MD5 before restarting the daemon.
