Question ProFTPD logfile for Webalizer

Doese anyone know what is the format for FTP log file which need to be set to let Webalizer read it?
I use ProFTPD and when I run the report, Webalizer keep saying log file is not found. I check the path so many times and know for sure it's there and I also have no problem when using Webalizer to report bandwidth with vHost. There is the last thing I can think of is the FTP log format is not setup right.

I also kinda have problems with webalizer parsing proftpd logs

I have added these lines to my proftpd.conf:
LogFormat      clf_default "%a - - %t "GET %f FTP/Client" 200 %b"
ExtendedLog        /var/log/xferlog.CLF read clf_default
(got it from inet)

And this in ftp.conf (webalizer config file)
LogFile     /var/log/xferlog.CLF
LogType        clf
BUT: the logfile is empty, everything is still logged in xferlog instead of xferlog.CLF (but xferlog.CLF is made in the process, it just stays empty)

Executing webalizer gives this:
root@Jupiter:/data/everyone/webalizer# webalizer -c ftp.conf
Webalizer V2.01-10 (Linux 2.4.22) English
Using logfile /var/log/xferlog.CLF (clf)
Creating output in /data/sites/datanukeftp
Hostname for reports is ''
History file not found...
No valid records found!
