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.
