    Affects: users of ftp/proftpd and ftp/proftpd-mysql
    Author: Martin Matuska <>
      The proftpd port has been updated to 1.3.4 and changed to use
      dynamically loadable modules. Please add corresponding LoadModule
      directives to your configuration file, like in the following example:
        LoadModule mod_tls.c
      The modules mod_sql_mysql and mod_sql_postgres are now outside of the
      main proftpd port:
      The proftpd-mysql port has been removed, use the alternative port:
  • 2011-12-29
    Affects: users of ftp/proftpd{-devel,-mysql}
    Reason:   Due to the nature of the way FreeBSD-SA-11:07.chroot is implemented,
      users have to update to latest -STABLE, -CURRENT, or supported
      security branch to use the chroot functionality in these ports.
      Please see the security advisory for more details.
