You can edit vsftpd.conf to enable, disable, and configure many features and settings of the vsftpd server, such as user access, filtering of bogus passwords, and access logging. Some features might require the creation and configuration of other files, such as
/etc/vsftpd.user_list Used by the userlist_enable and/or the userlist_deny options; the file contains a list of usernames to be denied access to the server.
/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list Used by the chroot_list_enable and/or chroot_local_user options, this file contains a list of users who are either allowed or denied access to a home directory. An alternate file can be specified using the chroot_list_file option.
/etc/vsftpd.banned_emails A list of anonymous password entries used to deny access if the deny_email_enable setting is enabled. An alternate file can be specified using the banned_email option.
/var/log/vsftpd.log Data transfer information is captured to this file if logging is enabled using the xferlog_enable setting.
