    Default FTP installation

    How do I install FTP on the Apache2 (localhost) server?

    Apache has a mod_ftp but it is not available in the YaST software management module. The Apache website says it does not ship with Apache. It shows in the Apache module list but cannot be enabled.

    It doesn't have to be mod_ftp. I just need to be able to use FTP on localhost (Apache, MySql, PHP).

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    FTP Server HOWTO - openSUSE Does this help? As you said php might be a way. PHP: FTP - Manual

    Though ftp sounds the better think vsftp is the recommended. Try to see here what others are recommending/research.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Here is a tutorial on installing and configuring pure-ftp in openSUSE -

    Pure-FTPd Installation and Configuration on openSuSE 10.3 | Torqzone

    I just thought I would pass along some of the stuff I find in case others are trying to set up a FTP server.

    If this is just so you can transfer files why not try sftp/scp? SSH comes
    enabled by default in almost every OS on the planet and all you would need
    to do is (if you haven't already) unblock port 22 (SSH) on your firewall
    and then use an SFTP/SCP client (of which there are several for every OS
    assuming you don't have one already, which is not likely considering this
    forum) and you not only transfer files without installing anything extra
    but you do so securely (FTP is completely insecure).

    Good luck.
