Smile Yocto - recipe changes, proFTPd


I got a module that has an sdk with Yocto Project. I managed to install the desired programs into the linux image (nano, rsync, mc, proftpd, vlc) but now I'd like to customise it a bit. As I read the manuals it is clear that the best way to do this to make .append files to the bb recipies or modify the recipe file.

But before doing that I just wanted to make a small modification, I created a proftpd.conf file, modified it a bit, example renamed the default server name.

After that I modified the bb recipe file's sources section:

SRC_URI = "${BPN}-${PV}.tar.gz \
file://proftpd.conf \
file://basic.conf.patch \
file://proftpd-basic.init \
file://default \
file://close-RequireValidShell-check.patch \
file://contrib.patch \
file://build_fixup.patch \
file://proftpd.service \

but my slight changes will not bitbake. The proftpd is going to be in the image, but with a default proftpd.conf file. It looks like my config file never gets inserted in the target.

Could you please help me out how should I start with this proftpd customisation?
