ftprestart — remove the shutdown message file created by ftpshut utility.


/usr/bin/ftprestart [-V]


The ftprestart command removes all the shutdown message files from the real, anonymous, and virtual user accounts. The message files are created by the ftpshut utility in the path as specified by the `shutdown' directive in the /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess file (see ftpshut(1) for more details). This command is always used after the ftpshut command is executed.

Note: For guest user accounts, the message files have to be removed manually. The removal will not be done by the ftprestart command. The -V option causes the program to display copyright and version information, then terminate.


ftprestart returns:

  • 0 successful

  • 1 failure


  • ftprestart: /servers/some.domain/ftp/etc/shutmsg removed.

  • ftprestart: /servers/other.domain/ftp/etc/shutmsg removed.

    ftprestart: /etc/shutmsg removed.


ftprestart was developed by the Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri.
