My proftpd.conf file consist only of these lines:

-------------------------
DisplayConnect
/etc/issue.net
/etc/issue.net
/etc/issue.net

DefaultRoot ~ !wheel

---------------------------

I can't overwrite files with a ftp client.

There are several other proftpd.conf files in /etc/
like
proftpd.conf, v
proftpd.conf-
proftpd.conf.bytes
proftpd.conf.prev


I have tried to apply
<Global>
AllowOverwite on
</Global>

But this doesn't seem to effect.
I also would like to change idle times and dns look up.

Is my conf file corrupted or does the conf file moved everywhere else?
In etc/sysconfig/ there is not a proftpd.conf. file.

Thank you all for your great help!

I have managed to creat a new conf file by switching to pureftp and than back to proftpd.

Now my proftpd.conf file is as it is supposed to be.

But i still can't overwrite files.
There is a line line:
<Directory />
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

but this doesn't seem to effect.

Yeah man, I can really count on you :(

I've solved the problem.

After reinstalling proftpd 1.29 the prob. is solved.
On a test account I wasn't allowed to overwrite because of ownership problems.

With a new account everything seems to work how it supposed to work.

So much replays. Thank you thank you :confused:
