Notes on pure-ftpd, an FTP server, as installed on Gentoo.


emerge -av pure-ftpd

Then edit /etc/conf.d/pure-ftpd and uncomment the following line:


Start ftpd server with:

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd start

Disk full error

If you attempt to ftp some files to the server and get an error saying “disk full”, then you’ll need to increase the maximum disk usage configured. Edit /etc/cond.f/pure-ftpd and set DISK_FULL to specify the percentage that you’re prepared to fill your disk:

DISK_FULL="-k 99%"

That will allow ftp to transfer files to fill your disk up to 99% full.
