I am having a similar kind of problem, checking my /var/log/messages I found this in the log:
Dec 15 20:34:00 ip-208-109-17-81 pure-config.pl: Running: /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd -O clf:/var/log/xferlog -lextauth:/var/run/ftpd.sock --daemonize -A -c50 -B -C8 -D -fftp -H -I15 -lextauth:/var/run/ftpd.sock -L2000:8 -m4 -s -U133:022 -u100 -Oxferlog:/usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog -k99 -Z -Y1

Dec 15 20:34:00 ip-208-109-17-81 pure-ftpd: pure-config.pl startup failed
I get the same thing that was mentioned above, but my log reads as this. I tried the http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=59820&highlight=Fedora
at first in hopes to see it work as it did for hjnet1, but it still gives the same failed result.
What could I do to be able to fix this? Has anyone else experienced this before?
the pure-config.pl it mentions IS there, but when I open it, it is blank...
