Description Luke Warmwater 2019-11-30 17:26:34 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #51409 +++

Some of our scripts perform `ls -t' and delete all but the most recent entry.

After switching to mod_ftp these scripts are broken, because the -t option is ignored. Passing the option should either return an error, or be honored...

At this time, apparently, there is no way to sort the output of ls (except on the client side). That's bad enough. The server quietly ignoring the sorting request makes things worse.
