    I was having problems trying to access ftp using filezilla client on a new install...

    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Status: Initializing TLS...
    Status: Verifying certificate...
    Status: TLS connection established.
    Status: Logged in
    Status: Retrieving directory listing...
    Status: Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.

    so i ran the following command in shell

    echo "40110 40210" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/passivePortRange (also went into my google cloud vpc network and opened tcp:40110-40210 port range)

    now i am getting this error

    [....] Restarting pure-ftpd-mysql (via systemctl): pure-ftpd-mysql.serviceJob for pure-ftpd-mysql.service failed. See 'systemctl status pure-ftpd-mysql.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

    just an update...i have resolved this issue.
    Not sure if it was my method of starting...or whether it was because i had two similar files
    1. etc/pure-ftpd/conf/passivePortRange
    2. etc/pure-ftpd/conf/PassivePortRange

    (notice one has capital "P" for passive).
    I deleted "1. etc/pure-ftpd/conf/passivePortRange" and then used "restart" in my shell instead of "start".

    It is working normally now.
