These is the perfect setup for centos and I cant find the instructions you posted above to edit that file:
pure-ftpd is recording a login and log out for EVERY file transferred. is this by design?? I was wondering why ftp upload was taking so long!
is there a setting somewhere that logs out after every upload?
I doubt that pure-ftpd logs you out, according to the log, the ftp client quits the connection.Pleasetry to use a different FTP client to see if you get the same behaviour.
