Description Chris Adams 2003-11-14 21:21:48 EST
The %post section of the spec file unconditionally changes the home
directory of the "ftp" user.  I had changed the home directory to
match my setup, but on installing a new version (compiled without PIE
per the hang bugzilla), it got changed back and broke my mirror until
I realized what had happened.

Another vsftpd packaging bug: /etc/logrotate.d/vsftpd references
/var/log/vsftpd.log, but by default, vsftpd creates /var/log/xferlog.
Comment 2 Chris Adams 2004-06-02 10:45:32 EDT
Okay, WRT the home directory bit, I'm an idiot and didn't see the
"anon_root" config directive.

And the log file name is consistent everywhere I think.
