provide ftp access to forums

Description

Since forums acp is broken again and nobody wants to waste time on it (again) invision support needs ftp/ftps access to forums.

I suggest to setup a small vsftpd or proftpd and limit access to port 21 to the mentioned 50.28.58.142 ip address.

let me know when they’re done and i’ll deactivate the account.

I wanted it to be sftp only, but i forgot what a PITA it is to do that

Since we pay for support I may go ahead and do support inquires more frequently if something does not work as expected or supposed so it might be useful to have a more permanent access.
As mentioned this can fairly easy be restricted and the data is stored - as the claim - securely at Invision.

Nevertheless it might be a good idea to implement - if not existing already - a daily backup of both the forums data and database. But that is a different task.
