    I just updated to 76.0.17 and I'm now having the same problem. I've had to replace Pure-FTP with Pro-FTPD to get the service to run again.

    But that's just a temporary fix I'm assuming? Pure has more pros than Pro, so sticking to Pro might give the server issues along the way, correct?

    Hello,


    Have either of you attempted to restart the server manually through CLI?

    Code:
    /scripts/restartsrv_ftpd
    And if so what is the output when running that? Is anything noted in
    Code:
    /var/log/messages
    Thanks!
