Dear I have 2 servers where I receive the same message.

He seen several solutions, but none effective, any recommended?

cat: /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid: No such file or directory
kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec]

Hello,

Can you reproduce the issue when manually running the "cat /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid" command on the system? I've seen this issue reported recently from a customer using ilabs anti-malware application (that's where the notification comes from). The end result in that case was that FTP was running well, but there was an issue with the third-party application.

Thank you.

Thanks for the reply

I execute the command and it gives the same error.

[[email protected] ~]# cat /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid
cat: /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid: No such file or directory

As I see there is no file specified in the path

[[email protected] run]# ls -ltr pure-ftpd.pid
ls: cannot access pure-ftpd.pid: No such file or directory
[[email protected] run]# ls -ltr pure*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5 Oct 25 12:00 pure-authd.pid

Only the file appears: pure-authd.pid

Hello,

Do you notice any error messages when restarting Pure-FTPd with the "/scripts/restartsrv_pureftpd" command?

Thank you.
