I have 10.04 32bit dedicated server. just installed 10min ago.

I need to create ftp and ssh accounts.

I used to use cpanel in my old server. Are there any free panel? or how can I create ftp accounts ?

Try Webmin.

echo "deb sarge contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb sarge contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
apt-get update
apt-get install webmin

Now, you can access Webmin by browsing to http://your-server:10000/.
To login, use root's username and password.

I still haven't found how to setup FTP users, but am kind of not believing what Webmin is showing to me... awesome! – brasofilo Nov 19 '13 at 3:35
