Can log files be time stamped? (such as FTP login and transfer log files)
 
I want to set up my log files so that they are time stamped. I especially want to do this to my samba and FTP log files so that I can see what is going on at what time... yah know. So, the big question is how would I do this?

You can do this with ProFTPd. It supports apache style customisable logs - maybe you want to have a look at it. Personally, it's the only ftp daemon I recommend, has a very good history plus a very powerful configuration engine.

I use proftpd. But my log isnt time stamped. Do I have to configure something to make it that way?

Yes, most likely since naz gave you a link to their website and stated they have apache like cusotomizable log files. Try reading some of their docs there, you should find what your looking for there.

ProFTPd LogFormat configuration directive.
