Hello @logocomunicacao

Thank you for contacting cPanel! It appears that there are some files with the immutable attribute in the /etc/proftpd directory. Please run the following commands and reply with the results:

Code:
lsattr -d /etc/proftpd
lsattr /etc/proftpd/emifcomb
lsattr /etc/proftpd/cofrinho
lsattr /etc/proftpd/passwd.vhosts

Best regards
