There are several ways but the easiest is to just create the logfile like xferlog and then just make the file read-only. Tada! No more updates to that file...

If you do the same thing to ioFTPD.log you will break IRC windrop bots like those that come with ioNinja, etc. They all get their events from the logfile...

On the other hand, you can choose to obfuscate sensitive information like IP addresses through the Obscure_Ip and Obscure_Host .ini options. This affects everything written to logfiles by ioFTPD itself. You can also enable the Hide_Xfer_Host option which doesn't even try to obscure the IP addresses in the xferlog file it just hides the field contents completely.
