    I am not entirely sure on this. I really did not think this was disabled by default.

    What is the value of MinUID in your /etc/pure-ftpd.conf file? Somebody else might know more about this, is there an option in the WHM for this?

    My MinUID is 100:

    root@server [~]# cat /etc/pure-ftpd.conf | grep "MinUID"
    MinUID 100

    So, that means that root can not access using ftp ha ???
