    For some reason when I close a ftp connection to a certain account, the process does not end, and ends up consuming quite a bit of processor/memory. Every other account I log in to is fine.. when I disconnect, or it times out.. the process ends. But, one account does not. I have to log-in to the server, use top to get the pid for that proftpd process, and the use kill to end the process.

    If anyone can help me figure this out, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    Run this command:
    /scripts/ftpup --force

    If that doesn't help, you might consider hiring a sys admin.

    okay, i was wrong... it's still happening. may be intermittent now though.. is it easy to switch over to another FTPd? If so, which would you recommend, and instructions on how to switch please.

    WHM - Service Configuration - FTP Configuration and select switch to <insert ftpd here>

    Personally, I prefer pure for the reasons described at the page I mentioned.
