ExtendedLog [ filename [[command-classes] format-nickname]]
server config, <VirtualHost>, <Anonymous> <Global>
1.1.6pl1 and later
The ExtendedLog directive allows customizable logfiles to be generated, either globally or per VirtualHost. The filename argument must contain an absolute pathname to a logfile which will be appended to when proftpd starts; the pathname should not be to a file in a nonexistent directory, to a world-writeable directory, or be a symbolic link (unless AllowLogSymlinks is set to on). Multiple logfiles (potentially with different command classes and formats) can be created. Optionally, the command-classes argument can be used to control which types of commands are logged. If not command classes are specified, proftpd logs all commands by default (passwords are hidden). command-classes is a comma delimited (no whitespace!) list of which commands to log.
The following are valid classes: NONE No commands AUTH Authentication commands (USER, PASS) INFO Informational commands (PWD, SYST, etc) DIRS Directory commands (LIST, CWD, MKD, etc) READ File reading (RETR) WRITE File/directory writing or creation MISC Miscellaneous commands (SITE, etc) ALL All commands (default)
If a format-nickname argument is supplied, ExtendedLog will use the predefined logformat (created by LogFormat). Otherwise, the default format of "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b" is used.
For example, to log all read and write operations to /var/log/ftp.log (using the default format), you could:
ExtendedLog /var/log/ftp.log read,write
