    I've noticed this too with a bunch of servers I admin.
    It looks to be something with the pure-ftpd rpm as switching to pro-ftp seems to work for now.

    Also experiencing the same thing at the moment with 2 servers so far... hopefully they will realize an issue and resolve it before the others update.

    I created a ticket with cpanel and apparently this is a known bug #65065

    assuming your error is that you get something like this when trying to connect to a pure-ftp server:

    root@newdurendal ~]# telnet **.***.**.** ***
    Trying **.***.**.***...
    telnet: connect to address **.***.**.***: Connection refused

    Try running this in shell
    Code:
    sed -i.bak 's/Bind/#Bind/g' /etc/pure-ftpd.conf && service pure-ftpd restart
    This is so far working on all the servers we have applied this to.

    There is a bug in 11.36.1.3 that will incorrectly setup the pureftpd bind if one is missing from the configuration file on update. It can be corrected with the following command if it has not already been done automaticlly (all affected servers on auto update should be fixed in the next 5 hours):

    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/autorepair pureftpd_bind

    11.36.1.4 has been published to correct the problem.

    Found the same problem on one of mour servers. Checking the conf shows that "Bind" line was uncommented. Commetented that line to fix the issue on our server ( Ref: /http://techsware.in/index.php/2013/04/change-listening-address-of-pure-ftp-cpanel/

    Running
    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/autorepair pureftpd_bind
    does fix the problem.

    Hi,
    I force the update for version 11.36.1.4 but the problem persists

    I opened the file / etc / pure-ftpd.conf to change the Bind online 127.0.0.1,21

    Code:
    #Bind 127.0.0.1,21
    Is this a security problem to change this line?

    Best regards

    No security risk, becuase it should work like that :) Unless FTP listen on other IPs than loopback, the service should be unavailable from outside the server

    Ok thank you :)
    But I note that the 11.36.1.4 version does not fix the problem
