There is a new stable scheduled for Thursday April 26th.
The release of CURRENT #42 is the Release Candidate for stable. If there are any issues with this version (or higher) please post them here.

I just upgraded a couple hours ago to C42 and now I found out I can't FTP to any sites, but can FTP to root, then I went to WHM and found out I had to agree to an end user license to continue with it. I did that, but still can't FTP to any sites.

When I FTP I get:

Code:
Could not open connection to FTP server.
Reason: Opening the channel was administratively prohibited.
Server error details:
  open failed

server is running Fedora and using pure-ftpd

Change

AllowTcpForwarding no

to

AllowTcpForwarding yes

in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

and restart ssh.

The downside is that sshd will still allow users with noshell or jailshell to forward connections. (this is why it is disabled per default now) I'd recommend using a product that does true sftp instead of connection forwarding to port 21

You mean SecureFX by Vandyke isn't one of the best secure ftp programs?

That fixed it anyway. Thanks.

They just can't connect by "ftp over SSH2" on port 21. That's the setting I couldn't use without altering the file.

The tradeoff (for enabling tcp port forwarding) is that jailshell and noshell users will still be able to use ssh forwarding.

Newest edge we have seen 2 bugs.
One when a user adds a ftp account in cpanel, it states that it adds the account but when going back to the ftp account page the new added ftp account does not show up. It makes the ftp folder just does not show up in cpanel.

Second when a user resets their cpanel account password it does not reset the main account ftp password.
We have seen this issue on Fedora, Centos, Redhat 9, and enterprise.

We have also opened a bug report.

http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=2364
Anyone else have these 2 issues?

Go on, have a guess
That's unreasonable, though. You cannot guarantee anyting is bug free, ever. TBH, as cPanel recommend, you're better off on the RELEASE tree if you want to keep as bug free and secure as possible because of the length of time between STABLE releases. IMX, EDGE is preferrable to STABLE as it gets patched more quickly when problems are found, though RELEASE is a happy medium for most.

isnt the point of stable that it has less bugs and is secure ?! thats why it has less options ?

Use EDGE :)

Also to the cPanel dev team some of my customers have complained about the cPanel file manager not saving some times e.g not saving when they click save :eek:

If you read the current descriptions for the different release trees you will see that RELEASE is preferred. These days, as I have already said, STABLE ends up being too buggy and less secure than RELEASE because of the update cycle difference. You should never equate STABLE as secure and bug free, it never will be, it never can be.
