I have 2 servers setup and one server is uploading list of files to another server, this all worked for over a year and last month it started making me problems, and i know exactly what is happening where, but i don't know how to resolve the issue. Server 1 is web hosting server with pure-ftpd Server 2 is script server which connects to hosting server and upload list of files command for uploading files goes like this: wput /var/www/games/*.json ftp://ftpuser:[email protected]_IP This works fine, it uploads all scripts to server 1 ftp folder. Problem arises that my `pure-ftpd` hangs and use 80% of cpu all the time, not only that, it constantly trying to transfer one file. And i don't understand why. Upon looking at `top` command it shows pure-ftpd with exactly which user is causing a spike, which is that one from copying batch of files. Further on i checked `pure-ftpd` logs and they don't say anything specific except transfered files logs. Than i checked the list of all opened files and connections of pure-ftpd and i found that there is open connection between `Server 1` and `Server 2`. There is one specific file that is opened in connection. /var/www/games/game_2031.json I tried to shut down `Server 2` but ftp still show open connection to it. I tried to kill the process with pure-ftpd but it just starts again after few minutes. I went to folder `/var/www/games/` and deleted all files. File `game_2031.json` reappears back after a minute. On top of that, the file should be about 7-10kb. But every time i refresh the folder file is just 0-1kb and date of creation changes. Even though `Server 2` is shut down. It looks like some internal pure-ftp issue and it's stuck with that one file. What should i do ?
