⚠️ cPanel pure-ftpd: [ERROR] Illegal load limit: 0

If you receive the following error message in the /var/log/messages file while restarting the pure-ftpd service, the problem is in the ftp configuration file at /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

pure-ftpd: (?@?) [ERROR] Configuration error: Illegal load limit: 0

Edit the pure-ftp configuration file and search for

MaxLoad = 0

change it to

MaxLoad = 4    (value should be above 0)

Save the file and restart the service:

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd restart
