NAME
     vsftpd -- Very Secure FTP Daemon

SYNOPSIS
     vsftpd [configuration file	and / or options]

DESCRIPTION
     vsftpd is the Very	Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon. The server can
     be	launched via a "super-server" such as inetd(8) or xinetd(8).  Alterna-
     tively, vsftpd can	be launched in standalone mode,	in which case vsftpd
     itself will listen	on the network.	This latter mode is easier to use, and
     recommended. It is	activated by setting listen=YES	in
     /usr/local/etc/vsftpd.conf.  Direct execution of the vsftpd binary	will
     then launch the FTP service ready for immediate client connections.

OPTIONS
     An	optional configuration file or files may be given on the command line.
     These files must be owned as root if running as root. Any command line
     option not	starting with a	"-" character is treated as a config file that
     will be loaded. Note that config files are	loaded in the strict order
     that they are encountered on the command line.  If	no config files	are
     specified,	the default configuration file of /usr/local/etc/vsftpd.conf
     will be loaded, after all other command line options are processed.

     Supported options are:

     -v	     Print the version information and exit, even if other options are
	     encountered.

     -ooption=value
	     Set a single option, value	pair as	per the	format in the config
	     file. Multiple -o options are supported, and they are applied in
	     strict order relative to their appearance on the command line,
	     including intermingling with loading of config files.

EXAMPLES
     vsftpd -olisten=NO	/usr/local/etc/vsftpd.conf -oftpd_banner=blah

     That example overrides vsftpd's built-in default for the "listen" option
     to	be NO, but then	loads /usr/local/etc/vsftpd.conf which may override
     that setting. Finally, the	"ftpd_banner" setting is set to	"blah",	which
     overrides any default vsftpd setting and any identical setting that was
     in	the config file.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/vsftpd.conf
