ftpusers - file which lists users who are not allowed to use ftp
/etc/ftpusersis used by proftpd(8); the file contains a list of users who are not allowed to use the ftp command. For security reasons at least users like ‘‘root’’, ‘‘bin’’, ‘‘uucp’’ and ‘‘news’’ should be listed in this file. Blank lines and lines beginning with ‘#’ are ignored.
Note: a lines with ‘#’ in the middle is not a comment. Don’t put ‘#’ after a name to comment it; use another line, or things will silently fail on you.
/etc/ftpusersmight contain the following entries:
# # /etc/ftpusers # root bin uucp news
