Get detailed vsftpd log?

I find /var/log/vsftpd.log, but the information is so poor and it's only about upload and download events.

So, who can tell me how to get more detailed log, such as who,when,where do what? Just like apache log does!

Really Thx.

vsftpd version:vsftpd-1.2.0-5

I have not tried this but I think this will work, please add a entry into /etc/syslog.conf similar to the one for /var/log/messages under the same file and this will log most of the details. Take a futher look at Howto configure syslog this tool is very powerfull
