For sites that run a large number of <VirtualHost>s for proftpd, it can be cumbersome to configure them all in the proftpd.conf file. Adding or removing virtual server configurations require restarting the daemon, as do changes to one of the server configurations. The daemon also consumes memory for each server configuration, and the memory footprint for the daemon process can grow large for large numbers of servers. The mod_autohost module allows for server configurations to be configured in individual files, and for those configuration to be used in an "on demand" fashion. Rather than loading the configurations into memory when the daemon starts up, the daemon will check the IP address and port being contacted by a connecting client, check in the filesystem for a mod_autohost configuration file for that address/port, dynamically parse the configuration, and insert the configuration into the session's process space. Thus changes to the configuration are seen whenever a client connects, without requiring a daemon restart. The memory footprint is reduced because proftpd, via mod_autohost, only reads and uses the needed configuration.
