I am using FreeBSD 6.0 and proftpd-1.2.10, how can I update to a more recent proftpd version?

Thanks a lot.

; backup proftpd config just to be sure
cp /etc/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf.orig

; update ports tree
portsnap fetch
portsnap update

; uninstall proftpd
pkg_delete proftpd-1.2.10

; install proftpd
cd /usr/ports/ftp/proftpd
make install clean

That work allmost for me, I had to copy the config file to
/usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf
Then I can not stop and start proftpd in DA control panel, I put
proftpd_enable="YES"
in rc.conf
now it works. Would like to have it working in Da Cpanel but...
;)

You better symlink the config file, or you won't be able to add FTP users through DA.

This is what system replies :
pkg_add -r "http://files.directadmin.com/services/freebsd5.1/da_proftpd-1.3.0.tgz"
Fetching http://files.directadmin.com/services/freebsd5.1/da_proftpd-1.3.0.tgz... Done.
pkg_add: package 'proftpd-1.3.0' or its older version already installed


But this is proftpd version installed :
220 ProFTPD 1.2.10 Server ready


Thanks in advance for your kind help

PS Should I remove old package before adding the new one?
