    Hi, last week sometime, my server did an automatic upgrade and completely knocked out FTP - all I get is failed service, contact sysadmin - i've tried the /scripts/fixftp etc, but to no avail..

    Looking in my log files, I see

    ftp:
    Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible.

    any ideas?


    Cheers,
    Dean

    Maybe you like to upgrade to 9.9.1-RELEASE_49 and see whether it helps.

    I think I had this problem with redhat. I just switched to ProFTPd and it worked fine.

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're having speed problems with proftpd, add the following directives at the top of /etc/proftpd.conf:
    Code:
    AuthPAM                         off
    UseReverseDNS                   off
    IdentLookups			off
    
    Then restart proftpd with:

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

    Have you tried switching to PureFTPd recently? We were using pro and switched back to pure after the last 9.9.9-R14 update. Don't seem to be having any particular problems so far.

    Yes I just tried again - I also updated my cPanel + WHM to : WHM 9.9.9 cPanel 9.9.9-R70
    RedHat 9 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0 ... i'm now updating my apache to see if that makes a difference... I hope it does :(
