Because it won't be ftp daemon anymore. It will be httpd + ftpd. Perhaps ioD :? or Dio

I believe renaming ioFTPD.exe doesn't make sense...

1) It's still ioFTPD (if it has http-daemon capabilities or not...)
2) many people must change their scripts (...and maybe more - like firewall rules ect.)
3) never change a running system, if it's not absolutely necessary

Grendel, since you're somewhat new to the community, the HTTP interface was originally planned just for administration purposes (adding, changing or removing groups and users etc.). If darkone chooses to further extend the HTTP interface to a point where it's a viable alternative to Microsoft's IIS (both HTTP and FTP) or Apache2, then renaming it would be a great idea. Afterall, Microsoft didn't name their HTTP/FTP/SMTP server IISFTP.

When this change comes, the various programming interfaces (SHmem, Modules, TCL, PHP) for ioFTPD will have changed so much, that changing a few strings or configuration options from "ioFTPD.exe" to "<product>.exe" will hardly be an issue.

Okay i see that you have great plans for the "io" project, and it makes me happy! For a while i thought the project was almost dead. As an old rocker i would prefere the name "Dio"

Default New Icon.

Please, for the love of all things nerdy, change that damn red shit blob of an icon :P it haunts me at night... really.

Also I hope you don't over extend yourself by adding full on HTTPd support, like when you took months to add HTTP features that few people use =( This is YOUR project no doubt, but we are all in love with the FTP so, FTP features would be nice. Raiden is always adding really nice ideas to their FTPd they are just poorly implemented, its a shame really. =(

Also, if your going to extend the deamon that far, why not add IRC output support? Internal = clean and efficient. no more eggdrop ports with shoddy ssl patches plz. :P

IRC output sounds like the perfect thing for a module...

Service support really should be a priority though IMHO.

Also, while we're discussing improvements, (getting offtopic) how about more smileys!

In terms of performance, filelocking is too expensive to be included (not to mention problems it causes with filedeletion, on non ntfs partitions & incompatible scripts) I might consider adding another code path for it later, but now my priorities are elsewhere.

will it be possible to obtain all info needed to run a site bot from the new module support rewrite? (without parsing log files) im coding a sitebot with built in irc output as im sick of eggdrop/windrop ports so much overkill for such a simple task. finished the bot code just waiting to figure out how to interface it with io.

Smile Sounds great

Only still missing in the adding feature list : Global Credits option
So we can get rid of the site transfer needed to transfer credits all the time between different sections with different ratios but in stead a nice Global Creds system

Mave, that's what the module system is for; and there's already a module which does so, ioShareDB.

Not likely to happen, there are far too many script kiddies using older ioFTPD versions (that didn't have the rename protection) on hacked servers. Which is why this protection scheme was implemented in the first place.

What's wrong with ioFTPD.exe anyway?
