Normally, the server will look for and parse any files in the encountered directories called ".ftpaccess". The files provide a functionality similar to Apache's .htaccess files -- mini-configuration files. This directive controls when those .ftpaccess files will be parsed.
The optional parameters are used to restrict the use of .ftpaccess files only to specific users. If the "user" restriction is given, then expression is a user-expression specifying to which users the rule applies. Similarly for the "group" restriction. For the "class" restriction, the expression is simply the name of connection class for whom the rule will apply.
