124<para><application>vs<acronym>FTP</acronym>D</application> comes with a basic
125anonymous-only configuration file that was copied to
126<filename class='directory'>/etc</filename> above. This file should be modified
127because it is now recommended to run <command>vsftpd</command> in standalone
128mode as opposed to <command>inetd</command>/<command>xinetd</command> mode.
129Also, you should specify the privilege separation user created above. Finally,
130you should specify the <command>chroot</command> directory.
131<command>man vsftpd.conf</command> will give you all the details.</para>
