    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?

    -Pete

    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.

    Thanks! (I missed that section when I looked at it earlier today.)
