I have installed properly vsftpd because I am able to open SFTP connection as root.
But no way to control logging or understand which configuration file is used.
I have followed properly this wonderful Vsftpd guide http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/vsftpd
But using a specific user, I am however getting the following error on FTP client side:
ERROR:> [19/11/2008 14:58:18] Insufficient privileges to perform the operation.
ERROR:> [19/11/2008 14:58:18] Server returned error.
I have then simply tried to activate logging parameters in /opt/etc/vsftpd.conf, but no success !
Not realy surprised because it seems that this /opt/etc/vsftpd.conf is never loaded because if I rename/remove it … reboot … my vsftpd is still working properly !
I then have removed/commented out line about vsftpd into /etc/inetd.conf … reboot … my vsftpd is still working properly !

So who could tell me how (by which miracle!) my vsftpd manage to still be working (in which process?) and how to find out the loaded configuration file in order to activate logging?
