    I'm running the latest build of ISPconfig 3 on a Debian 5 lenny build using the HOW TO guide on the site here. Something I've run into is pureftp's limit on resuming large files, which just about all of the files some of my sites handle are (high res psd's, disc images ect for graphics design). When I am downloading a file via FTP, and I try to resume it, it says this server does not support resuming of files greater than 2GB. They talk about it here: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/228#comment_20

    So in the end is my only resource to recompile pureftp with support? (how would I go about doing that so that ISPConfig is still happy, if anyone knows), or is there another alternative. I can't be the only ISPConfig site to have hit this snag. :D

    As far as I know, recompiling is the only option.


    just ensure that it is compiles with the --with-largefile option. But as far as I know, this is already the case on debian. So you might want to try a different FTP client first as it can be a limit of the ftp client as well.

    Websites contains mostly files that are just a few kb or mb in size and not > 2 GB. Thats why not many poeple might have encountered this compile limit in pure-ftpd.

    Thanks alot! I'll give these solutions a try. I was using Filezilla, but I'll grab another client just in case it's causing the issue. If that doesn't nix the issue I'll recompile --with-largefile option turned on and see if that remedies it.
