Description Chris Ricker 2003-03-04 23:17:06 UTC
vsftpd in RHL 8.0 runs out of xinetd

vsftpd in beta5 is instead configured to run by a SysV init script

In addition, vsftpd configuration has been modified to accomodate virtual hosts
more readily. In RHL 8.0, the config file for vsftpd was /etc/vsftpd.conf, and
this is still what the man page and other vsftpd documentation in beta5 claim is
the config file. However, in beta5 the config file is actually
/etc/vsftpd/*.conf (by default, just /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf), so that different
configs can be created for each virtual host.

All of this needs to be mentioned in the RELEASE_NOTES -- it's a significant
change in how the service is started, stopped, and configured

Unfortunately, your report came in too late to make it into the Red Hat Linux 9
release notes, so I'm going to close this as WONTFIX.  If it is any consolation,
the engineer that neglected to tell me about this change has received 50 lashes
with a wet noodle... :-)
