    I was curious as to whether anyone knows how to get the proftpd settings to update after changing the /etc/proftpd.conf file? I tried restarting proftpd, but that did nothing (I did that about 10 times). I saw a previous thread where the changes were said to have been cached or something, but the thread just kind of cut itself off right afterwards.

    Is there a specific way you have to do things for proftpd so the new config changes take hold?

    Ok, after more and more digging I finally found the answer:
    killall -HUP proftpd

    After running that command, restart proftpd and magically the changes have been implimented.

    You can also do this:

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd stop
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
