I wanted to rename a filename on ftp server. Unfortunately, the filename I
rename to is the same as an existing file!

Finally, the existing file is replaced.

Is this a bug?

Thanks a lot

It's a bug in your FTP server. Most servers (including FileZilla
Server) send a "550 file exists" reply or something similar if
you try to rename a file to a name which is already in use.
Apperently, your server did not check for the existance of the
file and did just overwrite it.

The attached screenshot indicates that FileZilla Server works as expected. It checks that the source file is present and then checks that the destination file is NOT present. If the destination file is present, it indicates an error.

So it all looks fine, bug not present.
