DirFakeUser [ DirFakeUser On|Off [username]]
server config, <VirtualHost>, <Global>, <Anonymous>, <Directory>, .ftpaccess
DirFakeUser can be used to hide the true user owners of files (including directories, fifos, etc.) in a directory listing. If simply turned On, DirFakeUser will display all files as being owned by user 'ftp'. Optionally, the username argument can be used to specify a specific user other than 'ftp'. "~" can be used as the argument in order to display the current user's username.
Both DirFakeGroup and DirFakeUser are completely cosmetic; the groupname or username specified don't need to exist on the system, and neither directive affects permissions, real ownership or access control in any way.
