SITE Commands


SiteMiscEngine

Syntax: SiteMiscEngine on|off
Default: on
Context: server config, <VirtualHost>, <Global>
Module: mod_site_misc
Compatibility: 1.3.3c and later

The SiteMiscEngine directive enables or disables the module's runtime support for the SITE commands. If set to off, this module will not support these SITE commands. Use this directive to disable the module.


SITE MKDIR

This SITE command allows the creation of a full directory path, similar to mkdir -p /path/to/dir. It is primarily for convenience, instead of having to use a loop of MKD and CWD commands; the normal MKD FTP command only creates a single directory at a time.

The syntax for SITE MKDIR is:

  SITE MKDIR path

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_MKDIR>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE RMDIR

This SITE command allows the deletion of a full directory path, similar to rm -fr /path/to/dir. It recursively deletes all of the files and directories under the given path. This command is primarily for convenience, instead of having to use a loop of NLST, DELE, and CWD commands; the normal DELE FTP command only deletes a single file at a time, and the normal RMD command does not handle removing directories that are not empty.

The syntax for SITE RMDIR is:

  SITE RMDIR path

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_RMDIR>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE SYMLINK

This SITE command allows the creation of symbolic links, similar to ln -s.

The syntax for SITE SYMLINK is:

  SITE SYMLINK source destination

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_SYMLINK>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE UTIME

This SITE command allows for setting the access and modification timestamps on files, similar to the touch /path/to/file command. This allows sites to have the often-requested ability to set the modification time on uploaded files.

The syntax for SITE UTIME is:

  SITE UTIME YYYYMMDDhhmm[ss] path
For example:
  SITE UTIME 200402240836 file.txt
  SITE UTIME 20040224083655 file.txt
would set the access and modification timestamps on file.txt to 8:36 AM, Febrary 24, 2004 (or 8:36:55 AM, Febrary 24, 2004, respectively).

The timestamp specified is treated as being in GMT/UTC, rather than in the local timezone.

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_UTIME>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


Installation

The mod_site_misc module is distributed with ProFTPD. Simply follow the normal steps for using third-party modules in proftpd:
  ./configure --with-modules=mod_site_misc
To build mod_site_misc as a DSO module:
  ./configure --enable-dso --with-shared=mod_site_misc
Then follow the usual steps:
  make 
  make install

Alternatively, if your proftpd was compiled with DSO support, you can use the prxs tool to build mod_site_misc as a shared module:

  prxs -c -i -d mod_site_misc.c
