Pure-FTP fails to run
« on: July 18, 2022, 01:18:09 AM »
I upgraded to centos 7 and had to reinstall CWP on the server. There seems to an issue with pure-ftp not running. I get the following error in CWP:

Job for pure-ftpd.service failed because a timeout was exceeded. See "systemctl status pure-ftpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Jul 18 01:12:10 fez systemd[1]: pure-ftpd.service start operation timed out. Terminating.

Is there a fix?

I'm sorry but pure-ftpd is running fine on my 3x CWP servers. Did you change a default? Your error pertains to too many levels of symbolic links, so that could be a clue as to its cause. You may want to remove pure-ftpd and reinstall it. Do you have it set for a default configuration or have you edited the conf file?

If I recall, implementing TLS was one of the few changes I made to the out-of-the-box pure-ftpd config. Otherwise what I have is vanilla.
