    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.

    [root@tralkan ~]# 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

    [root@tralkan run]# ls -ltr pure-ftpd.pid
    ls: cannot access pure-ftpd.pid: No such file or directory
    [root@tralkan 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.

    Is the PID File location perhaps different on your server?

    cat /etc/pure-ftpd.conf | grep PIDFile
