Q : where can I find/edit the login/goodbye message files?

A : Under your raidenftpd program directory , you can see a directory called message , under that dir you will find a lot of *.msg files , you can edit those files by any text editor or buillt in raidenftpd message file editor , however before you edit them you need to know which file will be displayed upon which event and which file to edit for the correct user language

when you add an user there is a option for user`s language , that is actually for the raidenftpd to choose the correct message files , for example when you add an user with japanese language attribute , it will use jpn-*.msg files under message directory , so , when you add an user with english language attribute it uses eng-*.msg files .

now looking into the message directory , you will see about 10 built in languages , of course you can add your own language . however there are some special message files named as default-*.msg , which will be used for all user langauges , that is because those files are used before the raidenftpd can determine the user`s language , so it will simply use the defaults.

here is a list of events and corresponding message files

note: you need to enable MESSAGE feature in setup-MSG menu.

displayed after login : *-welcome.msg
displayed after a file is uploaded : *-uploaded.msg
displayed after a mp3 file is uploaded : *-mp3.msg
displayed after a dir listing : *-listed.msg
displayed after a dupe file is uploaded : *-dupe.msg
displayed after the user sends goodbye : *-goodbye.msg
displayed after the user downloads a file : *-downloaded.msg
displayed after the user changes to a new dir : *-cwd.msg
displayed when the site is closed : default-sitedown.msg
displayed when the user is full : default-serverfull.msg
displayed before the user enters a login name : default-prelogin.msg
displayed when the max user per ip is reached : default-maxuserperip.msg
displayed when the user`s max login number is reached : default-maxlogins.msg
displayed when the user`s ip is denied : default-ipdenied.msg

That's ALL
