Introduction

mod_ftp is a FTP Protocol module to serve httpd content over the FTP protocol (whereever the HTTP protocol could also be used). It provides both RETR/REST retrieval and STOR/APPE upload, using the same user/permissions model as httpd (so it shares the same security considerations as mod_dav plus mod_dav_fs).

Get It!

mod_ftp 0.9.6 is released as beta, and you can get the source (or a binary build for win32) from your local mirror.

Development of mod_ftp can be followed through the Subversion repositories. For public access you can use :

% svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/mod_ftp/trunk/ mod_ftp

Documentation

The ftp documentation starting page and the mod_ftp reference page will get you started.
