That's it. You can now try to connect using your FTP client; however, you should configure your FTP client to use TLS.
But when I tried I got the SSL certificate
but none of the data I put In showed up. I said ok & trusted the cerificate anyway as I know its my server and i'm connecting locally. & then I got

Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server

I used the Encryption: Require explicit FTP over TLS (I'm using FileZilla)

I'm quite new to this, where am I going wrong?

Any help would be truly grateful... Thanks
Did you configure TLS in pure-ftpd AFTER installing ISPConfig? The tutorial is whack and some of the services won't work after you install ISPConfig. The pure-ftpd TLS configuration step cannot be performed in the order that it appears in the tutorial.

Also note that the certificate created in the tutorial will NEVER be used by pure-ftpd. The correct certificate is automatically created for you in the /etc/pki/pure-ftpd directory.

Look at this:
