proftpd default setting ListOptions
Hi there!

I don't know which distros are affected, but at least under a fresh debian lenny the /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf shows

ListOptions "-l"

If a user uploads files starting with a dot (.htacces for example) the uploaded file is hidden for this user and he/she is generally unable to work on it.

I suggest the default should be set to

ListOptions "-la"

Hope this finds it's way into mainline Wink

RE: proftpd default setting ListOptions
Have you tried checking "Show hidden files" option in your preferred FTP client? The default server's configuration doesn't display them on normal list, but the client is allowed to explicitly request it to also show hidden files (-a modifier to the LIST command issued by the client).

IMHO it's ok the way and there's no need to modify anything (as hidden files should be hidden by default, as it's name implies!)
