Re: Question about APF /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules list file

Duly noted, and I am aware of that fact, Trevor. It's just that if one searches for instances of "APF" among this CentOS community message board they will receive many returns of comments and discussions relating to APF. For this reason I thought that if my scenario were a commonly encountered behav...

Question about APF /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules list file

Hello, I've been running APF for years with good success. One of my APF instances is running on CentOS 5.11. I have a question about the /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules list file. I'm guessing the behavior I'm about to describe is by design but I want to make sure that something else strange isn't going o...

Re: question about displayed version of package

That's certainly a possibility. Could the presence of this binary file in the ./usr./local/ directory be why yum list installed still returns v1.3.1 of ProFTPd? I'm assuming that I can safely delete the file. I'll probably just rename it first to see if it fixes the issue. Thanks

Re: question about displayed version of package

rpm -V proftpd-1.3.3g-4.el5 returns:

Code: Select all

S.5....T  c /etc/ftpusers
S.5....T  c /etc/proftpd.conf
and which proftpd returns:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/sbin/proftpd
So a different binary path.

Re: question about displayed version of package

I apologize for being unclear in my OP. I renamed the binary (/usr/sbin/proftpd to /usr/sbin/proftpd.tmp) because the date stamp on it appeared to be unchanged from the previous one after the update, and I thought the file should have been replaced during the update process. I wanted to see if doing...

Re: question about displayed version of package

So no ideas at all why "- ProFTPD Version 1.3.1" is still returned for a version check?

Re: question about displayed version of package

Yes, I know it's not wise to be so far behind in releases because of ever-accruing vulnerabilities. As for the files, I used yum update proftpd and it installed the package relatively smoothly, with one exception. It threw a warning at the end telling me that the new /etc/pam.d/proftpd file had been...

question about displayed version of package

On CentOS 5.4, I upgraded ProFTPd v1.3.1 to v1.3.3g. The upgrade process pulled in some dependencies and succeeded. I renamed the new binary and conf files and modified the config accordingly, then restarted ProFTPd. ProFTPd seems to work fine and the installed packages list now includes the followi...
