Description Jim Beasley 2007-05-29 20:49:34 UTC
Description of problem:
when specifying the 'user_config_dir' directive in vsftpd.conf, vsftpd will fail
when there is no user config file in the specified directory.  Please see
bug#232404 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232404)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install vsftpd
2. add line to vsftpd.conf: user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd/user_conf
3. login as a local or anonymous user without creating a config file for the user
Actual results:
500 OOPS: reading non-root config file

Expected results:
should be able to login even when user config file for a specific user doesn't 
exist (i.e. user config files should not be mandatory for all users when enabled)

Additional info:
touch a file in user_config_dir with the name of the ftp user to workaround this
