Proftpd send e-mail when user upload a file

Hi there,

Is there a way to force the proftpd to send a email to me (with date,hour,file name, username), when any user upload a file?

Not sure, but you could use logwatch to watch the /var/log/xferlog (or whatever your FTP log file is) and send you an e-mail when it sees an upload entry. Swatch would probably also work.
