What do you mean by not able to install and configure proftpd?

Did you run "sudo apt-get install proftpd"? What kind of errors are you getting while installing or configuring it?

I'd already install the proftpd using that command, how can i configure my ftp so that users can login to it...??

Jensen Somers (jsomers) said : #4

There are numerous tutorials available on how to configure proftpd. It all somehow depends on what you want to do with it.

Some starting points:
- http://cpplus.info/docs/pdf-docs/AG%20-%20ProFTPD%20Server%20Configuration.pdf
- http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ProFTPD

The type of distribution you are using doesn't really matter most of the time. The Gentoo how-to should work perfectly when applied to your Ubuntu installation.
