The file is used to tell which set of virtual domain configuration
files that the server should use. With support, wu-ftpd has the abil‐
ity to use separate configuration files for each virtual domain.
For a virtual host, configuration files can be placed into a separate
virtual domain directory. The directory path and the virtual host IP
address that is to use those configuration files is listed in the file.
The actual configuration files put into the virtual domain directory
MUST be named as follows:
virtual domain's access file.
restrict the accounts that can use the web server."
SITE GROUP and SITE GPASS support."
allow or deny usernames access to that virtual server."
customize conversions available in the virtual domain."
You do not need to put every file in each of the virtual domain direc‐
tories. If you want a set of domains to use the master copy of a file,
for example, the file, then do not include that file in those virtual
domain directories. In that case the default master copy will be used.
The file names must match those listed above. If you misspell any of
them or name them something else, the server WILL NOT find them and the
master copy of them will be used instead.
ftpservers File Format
There are two fields to each entry.
When an ftp client connects to the server, tries to match the IP
address the ftp client connected to with one found in the file.
If a match is found the path to the specified directory containing the
configuration files for that specific domain is returned. The server
uses any configuration files in that directory.
If a match is not found, or an invalid directory path is encountered,
default paths to the configuration files are used. The use of in the
example above fails the check for a specific directory and the master
configuration files will be used.
Either the actual IP address or a specific hostname can be used to
specify the virtual domain. It is better to specify the actual IP of
the virtual domain as it reduces the need for a domain lookup and elim‐
inates DNS security related naming issues.
