The ftpaccess file contains most of the server configuration details. Each line contains a definition or parameter that is passed to the server to specify how the server is to operate. The directives can be broken down into the following categories, including
• Access Control Settings that determine who can access the FTP server and how it is accessed
• Information Settings that determine what information is provided by the server or displayed to a user
• Logging Settings that determine if logging is enabled and what information is logged
• Permission Control Settings that control the behavior of users when accessing the server; in other words, what actions users are allowed to perform, such as create a directory, upload a file, delete a file or directory, and so on
