    hola,
    I have a seemingly simple problem, but can't find a solution.

    I have Ispconfig3 with pure-ftpd on Ubuntu 10.04, and can't hide hidden/"dotfiles" for every user. In /etc/pure-ftpd/conf I have DisplayDotFiles set 'no', and ProhibitDotFilesRead with 'yes'.

    Still, the files get displayed...

    I've already set that option, with no effect :(
    I don't know if its relevant, but I'm logging in to ftp with a unix user, not with one created by ISPConfig.

    I guess you use a sftp or scp protocol then and not ftp or ftps. In that case, your login is handled by the ssh daemon and not FTP daemon.

    The welcome message is made by pure-ftpd...

    I also tried to log in with an ISPConfig-made user, and .htaccess files are still visible :(

    Is it possible that pure-ftpd has its config somewhere else besides /etc/pure-ftpd/conf ?

    Also, I've noticed that when writing pure-ftpd the error "pure-ftpd is not installed" appears. Is this normal with ISPConfig3?

    The pure-ftpd binary is named pure-ftpd-mysql on debian and ubuntu linux.
