Virtual Hosting With vsftpd And MySQL On Ubuntu 12.04

Vsftpd is one of the most secure and fastest FTP servers for Linux.
Usually vsftpd is configured to work with system users. This document
describes how to install a vsftpd server that uses virtual users from a
MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more
performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single
machine.
