How to update pure-ftpd
« on: February 23, 2018, 09:47:38 AM »
Could someone perhaps explain how to update pure-ftpd on CWP 6 please.
My current version is the default from install, FTP version: 1.0.36 , which is now an obsolete version.

CWP 6 = CWP for CentOS 6?
Code: [Select]
yum info pure-ftpd
Will show if there is any more recent version available on the repos of the system. For CentOS 7 CWP is providing currently pure-ftpd v 1.0.46 which is just slightly behind the latest release : 1.0.47 (released on October 27, 2017)

Else you head over to https://www.pureftpd.org/project/pure-ftpd and compile the latest version from source.

seems there is no update available possibly due to repo protections??
Reason i have not updated from source is I am unsure if there will be any conflicts , hopefully admin will respond and clarify this.

your installation stems from the rpmforge repo. Is the cwp repo enabled?
Code: [Select]
yum repolist all
and perhaps check also
Code: [Select]
yum whatprovides pure-ftpd

RPMForge/RepoForge is a dead project. It is not maintained. DO NOT USE.

Thx once again.

cwp repo is enabled and i have also disabled rpmforge repo.
It seems that pureftpd is in fact coming from the rpmforge repo.

Doesn't look like it
http://repo.centos-webpanel.com/repo/6/

when you look at the cwp 7 repo they have pure-ftpd listed on that.
