Actually, Centos comes with vsftp, which might be easier than adding another one, unless you really prefer pure-ftp.
Looks like your cmd should work; have you checked log files eg /var/log/messages and presumably pure-ftp has its own logfile?
works, but I need the options -j -l puredb:/etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.pdb
enabled, else I can't log into the FTP server. (It enables virtual accounts.) And I don't see how I can add them, when starting the service like that.
Also, my messages and pureftpd logfiles are completely empty, so there's nothing really interesting I can find in there.
As for vsftpd... It doesn't look like it's pre-installed. I could also be very blind, of course. find
couldn't locate it.
