    Hello HTF Friends,

    Setup : Multi-server
    OS : Ubuntu 18.0.4
    Server type : Nginx/1.18.0
    Databse : mySql

    I need to disable the use of plain text passwords for ftp but can't seem to find the config to do so. Or maybe just disable ftp and only allow ftps. Does anyone know how to get this done?

    That's what I would recommend. A Plaintext password is no issue when used over a secure SSL/TLS channel. To allow SSL sessions only, run:

    echo 2 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS

    and then restart pure-ftpd-mysql
