Description Pekka Savola 2001-12-07 10:33:42 EST
As a result of the wu-ftpd update, my /etc/ftpaccess was moved to /etc/ftpaccess.rpmsave.

As a consequence, anonymous ftp access was opened for the world in the
configuration file (IIRC), and several other toggles (like where people can connect, where
PASV/PORT theft is allowed etc.) were "lost".

I think these files, or at least most of them, should be %noreplace.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-12-13 08:35:30 EST
They aren't noreplace because the /home/ftp -> /var/ftp change needed to get 
into every config file. Guess I'd better move that to a %post script, though.

Fixed in 2.6.2-1
