DESCRIPTION

       Virtual users is a simple mechanism to store  a  list  of  users,  with
       their  password, name, uid, directory, etc. It’s just like /etc/passwd.
       But it’s not /etc/passwd. It’s a different file, only for FTP.
       It means that you can easily create FTP-only accounts  without  messing
       your system accounts.
       Additionnaly,  virtual users files can store individual quotas, ratios,
       bandwidth, etc. System accounts can’t do this.
       Thousands of virtual users can share the same system user, as  long  as
       they all are chrooted, and they have their own home directory.

FILES

       /etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.passwd
       /etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.pdb

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       PURE_PASSWDFILE  If this variable is defined, this is the default value
       for  the  text  password  file.  Without  this   variable,   /etc/pure-
       ftpd/pureftpd.passwd is assumed.
       PURE_DBFILE  If this variable is defined, this is the default value for
       the  PureDB  password   file.   Without   this   variable,   /etc/pure-
       ftpd/pureftpd.pdb is assumed.
