FTP Troubleshooting

Last updated 2 days ago

FTP connection issues are almost always firewall related. You should triple check that ports 2121 and the range 50000-51000 is allowed in your firewall.

  1. Check status of MediaCP ftp service. If its running then 9/10 times its going to be a network related issue (inc. firewall)
    mediacp status
  2. Try restarting the MediaCP ftp service:
    mediacp restart ftp
  3. Run netstat to confirm that the ftp service is running and listening on port 2121. It might be required to install netstat first using yum install net-tools or apt install net-tools
    netstat -tulpn | grep 2121
  4. If you are using ConfigServer or another Firewall try disabling it completely:
    csf -x;
  5. Run proftpd in debug mode and watch for connection and errors:
    a) Stop MediaCP FTP:

    mediacp stop ftp

    b) Start proftpd in debug mode:

    /usr/local/mediacp/proftpd/sbin/proftpd -nd6 -c /usr/local/mediacp/proftpd/etc/proftpd.conf

Please ensure the following ports are available on your server:

  • 2121
  • 50000 – 51000

You can check the status of the FTP service by running the following command in SSH:

/usr/local/mediacp/service status

Please try to regenerate all FTP account logins using the following command in SSH:

/root/init --reset-ftp
