Question locate proftpd.conf after installation


i've already installed proftpd-1.2.8 and i can't seem to locate the proftpd.conf file that i need to reconfigure for some minor details such as this..

# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

ServerName "ProFTPD"
ServerType standalone
DefaultServer on
###LSDefaultOptions/ListOptions "-a"
UseReverseDNS off
IdentLookups off

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port 21

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask 022

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
MaxInstances 30

# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
User nobody
Group nobody

# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
#DefaultRoot ~

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory />
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>


why does it seem to be this way?

If you installed under /usr/local then it should be in /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf. If it's not there you can always update your db and locate it.

$> updatedb
$> locate proftpd.conf -i
