We have at least 5 licensed pro version running primarily on CentOS 7 and FTP has become a real pain in the ass. With luck, just running the command
That sometime will work. After uninstalling FTP and reinstalling it I was able to fix a server a few days ago and now FTP no longer works again.
------- Job for proftpd.service failed because a timeout was exceeded. See "systemctl status proftpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details
I see nothing helpful in the log files. So here we go again. I tried deleting the keys in etc/ssh such as ssh_host_ecdsa_key and then recreated the keys. That did not work either. Nor have I found any SSH lines in the config file that could be deleted that would allow the FTP server to start. What is it with this proFTPD that it won't work or if it work it breaks. Does anyone know what is wrong with that program. Is there something besides uninstalling and reinstalling that will fix it once in for all? It has been described as a good FTP server but you sure can't prove it by me. Is there any options for FTP?
