Default FTP timeout becoming a big problem

Hey guys,

I am using my server not only as a small hosting server, but also as an FTP backup for my 8 other servers with DirectAdmin. When I attempt to backup, most of my things are backed up successully except for some larger files, which are timed out after a period of time. How to I increase the timeout settings for FTP? Any help would be appreciated greatly, I would be screwed if I lost some data and didn't have proper backups... Thanks!!!

Have a look at the proftpd manual. E.g. a candidate that looks interesting might be:


Mke sure that you wrap all commands into <global></global> tags in proftpd.conf that shall be used by all virtual hosts.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
