    can't hide "." files in pure-ftpd


    hola,
    I've just created my server with ISPConfig3. When I log into the server with FTP with any user, I can see hidden files (.*).

    I've set DisplayDotFiles 'no' and ProhibitDotFilesRead to 'yes' in /etc/pure-ftpd/conf, with no effect.

    Strange thing is, when I set other options (like NoAnonymous) they seem to have effect (in this case displaying this in the ftp welcome message.). But the two commands above have seemingly no effect.

    What could be the problem?

    Have you tried starting pure-ftpd manually and using -X or --prohibitdotfilesread?

    as I have ISPConfig3 for convenience, the start/stop of pure-ftpd is not managed by the user. As soon as I kill the service, ISPConfig restarts it.
    the link also just describes the creation of the above files, which don't seem to have an effect..
