notify uploads by email in vsftpd

Hi guys,

I have setup my linux box as an FTP server and im using vsftpd as my ftp daemon. I'd like to configure it so that I'll be notified thru email whenever there is a succesful upload. Is there any way that I can do this? thanks

You can keep a log of uploads and downloads but You'll have to use a cron job to email them to you.

              If enabled, a log file will be maintained detailling uploads and
              downloads.    By   default,   this   file   will  be  placed  at
              /var/log/vsftpd.log, but this location may be  overridden  using
              the configuration setting vsftpd_log_file.

Good point, /bin/bash. Any suggestions on the best way to handle this? I'd like to do exactly the same thing (was looking at File Alteration Monitor, which was a bit overkill). A cron job is a lot more manageable, but how do you ensure it's checking frequently but not sending multiple e-mails for each upload?
