Description Ryan Wagoner 2006-10-10 22:23:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The log filename for vsftpd is /var/log/xferlog. Per the commented line in the
config (line 51) and the logrotate.d file it should be vsftpd.log. 

Due to this I had to uncomment the logfile line in order for the log to be named
correctly and logrotate to perform its job.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
vsftpd 2.0.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the vsftpd package.
Comment 1 Maros Barabas 2006-10-13 14:46:12 EDT
This is not a bug. The "/var/log/xferlog" is default log file _only_ for wu-ftpd
logging. Other loging is _always_ "/var/log/vsftpd.log".
