    I've got a terrific Server setup going on and everything is working as advertised thanks to the guys on here. But since early last year my requirement for FTPS has meant that clients need to stick with the older version of FileZilla since they enforced TLS1.3 in later versions, and that doesn't play well with the generic Debian pure-ftpd which is version 1.0.46. If you go to this site though https://github.com/jedisct1/pure-ftpd you can download the latest version that at time of writing is 1.0.49. Where I'm stuck though is what options are needed to install with. Like ./configure ???? I'm not sure what is needed here. If someone knows could they let me know.

    Thanks.

    Update to Debian 10 which ships with pure-ftpd 1.0.47-3 which has the issue fixed as well. If you can't update to Debian 10, then you can check if a newer version is e.g. in backports for Debian 9 or if you can install the Debian 10 version with apt-pinning.

    Oops, I miss spoke, I'm actually running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Debian is another machine :confused:.
    You suggesting apt-pinning helped me get it. Got more info here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto
    This is what I did. Set vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01ubuntu-bionic to -> APT::Default-Release "bionic";
    vi /etc/apt/preferences ->
    Package: pure-ftpd-mysql
    Pin: release n=bionic
    Pin-Priority: -10
    Package: pure-ftpd-mysql
    Pin: release n=disco
    Pin-Priority: 900
    Package: pure-ftpd
    Pin: release n=bionic
    Pin-Priority: -10
    Package: pure-ftpd
    Pin: release n=disco
    Pin-Priority: 900

    Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list ->
    #### development #########
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu disco main restricted universe multiverse

    then run -> apt install pure-ftpd-mysql/disco

    This ought to help anyone else in the same basket I hope. Also, let me know if I broke something. seems alright though ATM.
