    We are seeing some issues with FTP sessions (using proftpd) which do not close when the user has disconnected. Looking in top the process is still running, for ages and ages afterwards, and each one is shown to be using up to 45% of the CPU.

    It appears that the process is not closing down/terminating as it should.

    Anyone else seen this? Any ideas?

    (BTW, because of the fair number of negative comments about pureftp, and the lack of any concrete info on whether there ever really was/is a security issue in proftpd, we elected to stay with proftpd, and wish to continue with it. So pls don't just say "change to pureftp". Tks!)

    Try the following commands and hope will work:
    /scripts/rebuildproftpd

    /scripts/restartsrv_proftpd
    or
    /scripts/restartsrv_ftpserver

    Try switching to pure-ftp as proftp has been buggy since ever.

    If anyone else comes across this... It seems that

    /scripts/ftpup --force

    to force a reinstallation of proftpd has done the trick.
