    I am not sure what is going on but proftp is (xferlog) not logging anything. I am using ProFTPD Version 1.2.8 and the logging was working fine even with this version.
    Nothing has been changed.

    Since proftpd runs as nobody, you should make sure the file has appropriate permissions. 666 should be fine and then killall -HUP proftpd

    Did what you suggested and it still does not work. Nothing is being logged.

    Did you find a solution to this one? Same problem on a server here, chmod to 666 and still nothing being written to xferlog.

    If that is the file being referred to, it should be 440.
