    I have WHM 10.0.0 cPanel 10.1.0-R30 RedHat 7.3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0, but here is no way to switch to Pure-ftp.

    This is going on for about 6 months. Any ideas?

    Here is what is says:

    Go on, have a guess
    Have you checked /var/log/messages for errors when restarting the FTP daemon?

    You could try forcing an update:

    /scripts/ftpup --force

    Force install does not solve the problem.

    If you're running the latest release in the cPanel tree you are using and don't see a fix in the changelog you need to either log it in bugzilla if it isn't there if you can recreate the issue and probably raise a ticket directly with cPanel or through your license provider.
