    Greetings from Greece,

    In my logwatch I get some 100s of lines like this daily:

    [servername] (client IP) - mod_cap/1.0: cap_set_proc failed: Operation not permitted
    [servername] (client IP) - mod_cap/1.0: attempt to configure capabilities failed, reverting to normal operation

    There's a record for each user login through FTP. Can anyone help me with this?

    Do you have anon ftp with proftpd ? Try to switch off anon login and see if it helps.

    kalimera :)

    i found this.. may help you

    cap_get_proc returns a pointer to an allocated cap_t associated with the
    process.

    cap_set_proc sets the capabilities for the process from the cap_t cap.
    If any flag in cap is set for any capability not currently permitted for
    the calling process, the function fails, and the capability state of the
    process shall remain unchanged.

    cap_set_proc_flags sets the capability state flags for the process from
    the cap_value_t flags. If the value of flags is CAP_FLAG_PURE_RECALC
    capabilities will not be inherited through exec(2) unless the program
    file has a capability set associated with it.
