NAME
       ftpdctl - ProFTPD control program

SYNOPSIS
       ftpdctl [ -hv ] [ -s Unix domain socket ] action action-parameters

DESCRIPTION
       ftpdctl  is the control program for the Professional File Transfer Pro-
       tocol (FTP) server daemon.  The control program is used to control  the
       daemon while it is running, supporting actions like restarting or shut-
       ting down the daemon, disabling or enabling specific  virtual  servers,
       kicking FTP users, etc.

       The  specific  actions available via ftpdctl depend on the modules com-
       piled into proftpd.  Check the modules documentation for more  informa-
       tion on the specific actions supported by the modules.

                   with  proftpd  rather  than the default Unix domain socket.
                   The        default        controls        socket         is
                   /var/run/proftpd/proftpd.sock
