For cPanel & WHM version 60

(Home >> Service Configuration >> FTP Server Selection)

Overview

This interface allows you to select an FTP server daemon, or to disable FTP services.

Note:

When you upgrade a server for which the FTP RPM's target is set to unmanaged, problems may occur in the cPanel user interface. For more information, read our Restore cPanel & WHM management of all FTP targets on your server documentation. 

How to select an FTP daemon

To select an FTP daemon for your server, perform the following steps:

  1. In the FTP Server column, select ProFTPD or Pure-FTPd.
    • Select Disabled to disable FTP services.
  2. Click Save.

Pure-FTPd and ProFTPD

The following list offers comparisons between these FTP server daemons:

  • Pure-FTPd typically provides faster FTP transfers than ProFTPD.
  • Pure-FTPd does not display statistics in the statistics menu.
  • Pure-FTPd supports virtual user quotas; ProFTPD does not.
  • ProFTPD will display your bandwidth usage, allowing you to monitor the amount of bandwidth that FTP sessions use.

For more information, visit the ProFTPD and Pure-FTPd websites.
