    Hello all

    I have pro-ftp currently enabled on my box but I am curious what other people in here suggest? I know about the lack of bandwidth monitoring but is pure-ftpd better enough fo this to not make a difference?

    Thanks in advance

    we use pure-ftp on all servers.

    Customers liked it when we switched over because the FTP login time went from like 5-10 seconds with proftpd to 1-2 seconds with pureftp.

    Does the switch requie a reboot?

    Should I be concerned about anything?

    Nope, takes about 15-30 seconds once you click the switch button and its all ready to go.

    you might have to resync ftp passwords, which can be done towards the bottom in the cpanel section.

    I just swithced to pure-ftpd because of a bug with proftpd that enabled a hacker to deface all my sites.

    redhat is not using proftpd anymore. i think cpanel should do the same.
