    Waiting for ftpserver to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

    ftpserver status
    ---nothing is printed inside the box----

    ftpserver: [ != 220] ftpserver has failed, please contact the sysadmin.


    I have tried /scripts/ftpup --force, /scripts/ftpup pure-ftpd --force and /scripts/ftpup --force pure-ftpd

    I have tried switching to ProFTP, the back to pure... neither worked.


    Immediately prior to this becoming unable to work, I rebooted Linux

    In case it helps anyone else, it appears that both pureFTP and ProFTP were trying to start on the same port.

    I thought that WHM would enable one or the other, but apparently both were starting and canceling each other out.

    Ah, good to know! You're using PureFTP, right?
