    I followed this tutorial How to Change Your FTP Port :: The cPanel Admin and other similar tutorial, to change ftp port, but still cant make it

    the problem is, /etc/chkserv.d/ftpd file always back using the original file, before i edit the file, that still using port 21,

    after i restarted the ftp server, using these commands
    or from whm > Restart Services > FTP Server (ProFTPd/PureFTPd)

    please help guys why that file always back automatically using the original file, or give me the working tutorial link to change ftp port

    - i am using Pure-FTP
    - i already disabled configserver firewall, so there is no problem with firewall
