Hello :)

Do you have any process resource monitors installed that could be killing the Pure-FTPd startup process? Do you notice any error messages in /var/log/messages when it fails to start?

Thank you.

Do you notice any error messages in /var/log/messages when it fails to start? I'm not sure the user interface will display the full output during the restart.

Thank you.
