ShowSymlinks [ ShowSymlinks on|off]
(versions 1.1.5 and beyond) ShowSymlinks On
server config, <VirtualHost>, <Anonymous>, <Global>
Compatibility: 0.99.0pl6 and later Symbolic links (if supported on the host OS and filesystem) can be either shown in directory listings (including the target of the link) or can be "hidden" (proftpd dereferences symlinks and reports the target's permissions and ownership). The default behavior is to show all symbolic links when normal users are logged in, and hide them for anonymous sessions. If a symbolic link cannot be dereferenced for any reason (permissions, target does not exist, etc) and ShowSymlinks is off, proftpd displays the link as a directory entry of type 'l' (link) with the ownership and permissions of the actual link. Under ProFTPD versions 1.1.5 and higher, the default behavior in regard to ShowSymlinks has been changed so that symbolic links are always displayed as such (in all cases), unless ShowSymlinks off is explicitly set.
