mod_readme.cfile for ProFTPD 1.3.x, and is not compiled by default. Installation instructions are discussed here.
The most current version of
mod_readme is distributed with the
ProFTPD source code.
DisplayReadme directive configures the server to notify
the client of the last modified date of the specified path or
pattern. These notifications happen whenever a client logs in,
or whenever the client changes directory.
DisplayReadme READMEwill result in the following being displayed to connecting client, assuming there is a file called "README" in the current directory:
Please read the file README it was last modified on Sun Oct 17 10:36:14 2011 - 0 days ago
As another example, assume there are two files named "README" and "README.first" in the directory into which the client changed. Then using
DisplayReadme README*might result in the following being sent to the client:
Please read the file README it was last modified on Tue Jan 25 04:47:48 2011 - 0 days ago Please read the file README.first it was last modified on Tue Jan 25 04:48:04 2011 - 0 days ago
