Description Gilbert E. Detillieux 1999-10-22 21:21:56 UTC
This will only affect sites that use the ftp-exec directory
(for "site exec" commands) with the new wu-ftpd-2.6.0 update
packages, so it's probably a low priority...

wu-ftpd-2.6.0-redhat.patch attempts to change the ftp-exec
path from the default by modifying src/pathnames.h.in, but
that file is only used if the new "configure" script is run.
Since the wu-ftpd.spec file is still using the old "build"
script, the patch has no effect.  The change should be
applied to src/pathnmaes.h.noac instead:

    ** Virtual hosting requires to support many different
types of customer.

Of course, another simple workaround is to just make
/bin/ftp-exec a symlink to /usr/bin/ftp-exec, and things
will continue to work regardless of the which path ftpd

Bug 6272 was for a version of Red Hat Linux that is no longer supported. Looking
at the latest 2 releases (7.3/8.0) this problem does not seem to exist anymore.
