Description R P Herrold 2003-02-19 06:30:53 UTC
man page vs packaging discrepancies

location of vsftpd.conf is different than the documentation

[root@ftp init.d]# grep vs  vsftpd  | grep conf
# config: /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
                sites=(`ls /etc/vsftpd/*.conf`)
[root@ftp init.d]#

 ------------ yet -----------

man vsftpd offers:

     An optional [configuration file] may be given on the command line.  The
     default configuration file is /etc/vsftpd.conf.

man vsftpd.conf states:

[root@ftp etc]# pwd
[root@ftp etc]# ls -al vsftpd*
-rw-------    1 root     root          125 Feb 19 00:48 vsftpd.ftpusers
-rw-------    1 root     root          361 Feb 19 00:48 vsftpd.user_list

total 13
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         1024 Feb 19 01:05 .
drwxr-xr-x   45 root     root         4096 Feb 19 00:48 ..
-rw-------    1 root     root         3847 Feb 19 01:05 vsftpd.conf
-rw-------    1 root     root         3837 Feb 19 01:05 vsftpd.conf~


so the man doco is wrong, as to Red Hat's packaging of the product.
