Hi,

I have successfully changed my FTP port from 21 to another port in /etc/pure-ftpd.conf (because it cannot be done - to my knowledge - in WHM) but any time any other setting is changed in WHM's FTP Server Configuration panel it ALSO resets the port binding to 21.

This is very annoying! How do I remedy this? Is there a file to change cPanel's default?

Hello,

You can use the instructions in our FTP FAQ document to ensure the change is preserved through updates and separate configuration changes.

Thank you.
