IgnoreHidden [ IgnoreHidden on|off]
0.99.0 and later
Normally, files hidden via HideNoAccess, HideUser or HideGroup can be operated on by all FTP commands (assuming Unix file permissions allow access), even though they do not appear in directory listings. Additionally, even when normal file system permissions disallow access, proftpd returns a "Permission denied" error to the client, indicating that the requested object does exist, even if it cannot be acted upon. IgnoreHidden configures a <Limit> block to completely ignore any hidden directory entries for the set of limited FTP commands. This has the effect of returning an error similar to "No such file or directory" when the client attempts to use the limited command upon a hidden directory or file.
