verbose-mode NcFTPd file configuration
Don't forget to restart NcFTPd after modifying the file.

This option can be used have NcFTPd generate extra (diagnostic) output to the misc log. By default, NcFTPd doesn't log anything except critical errors to the misc misc log.

By enabling verbose mode, you can see the exactly how client programs are communicating with NcFTPd since you see each line of communication between client and server.

For example, this sample shows why a user's uploads were failing:

Unfortunately, like many of today's client programs, this particular program failed to recognize the numerous errors that had occurred and proclaimed success.

This is actually an alternate method of enabling verbose mode that was introduced for NcFTPd 2.8.0; another way, which works on all versions, is described in the FAQ.

It bears repeating, but don't forget to restart NcFTPd after modifying the file, otherwise you won't see any verbose logging. Doing this is usually as simple as running /usr/local/sbin/restart_ncftpd as root.
