secure proftpd with SFTP and force it
Hi! I am wondering how to force SFTP instead of FTP with Proftpd.
A few questions, is the file, /etc/sentora/configs/proftpd/proftpd-mysql.conf the only config file?

I found a tutorial but it talks about authorized users, which file is unfamiliar to me with sentora?
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/t...ead-of-ftp

Could I just add the info on the bottom to proftpd?
Code:
<IfModule mod_sftp.c>

        SFTPEngine on
        Port 2222
        SFTPLog /var/log/proftpd/sftp.log

        # Configure both the RSA and DSA host keys, using the same host key
        # files that OpenSSH uses.
        SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
        SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key

        SFTPAuthMethods publickey

        SFTPAuthorizedUserKeys file:/etc/proftpd/authorized_keys/%u

        # Enable compression
        SFTPCompression delayed

</IfModule>

If so, what to do with the line:
Code:
SFTPAuthorizedUserKeys file:/etc/proftpd/authorized_keys/%u

Can I use passwords with SFTP? Or only work with keys??
Should I sable SFTP Access on the SSH Port? Like that guide suggests, and if so why?


Thanks
