Proftpd file overwrite problem


I have a problem with proftpd, it doesn't overwrite files. Only walkaround is to delete them and upload again. I have the same config file as it was before, when everything worked just fine. I don't know the reason, please help.

I'm not sure why the behavior might have changed, but check out the AllowOverwrite http://proftpd.linux.co.uk/localsite...Overwrite.html setting.

AllowOverwrite on, but doesn't overwrites. I forgot to say that I upgraded proftpd to the latest version, maybe some config changes in it? 1.2.7->1.2.9rc2

It's a bug; see http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2165.

You need the patch from http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2183.

Copy the patch into the same directory that you find the "src" directory in the proftpd source package. Run:

patch -p1 -d src < patchfile

where patchfile is the patch's filename.
