    i clicked accept certificate etc, but it keeps timing out attempting to retrive folder or whatever..?

    i ran this just to make sure:
    chown -R nginx:nginx /home/nginx/domains/*

    gets stuck at "retrieving map list"

    Nginx 1.13.x
    MariaDB 5.5
    • Did you let the script generate a password for you or set your own ?
    • Did you make sure to enable explicit TLS/SSL mode and enable PASV passive mode like in 1st post here.
    • Which FTP client ? As not all FTP clients support FTP explicit TLS/SSL mode only clients listed at bottom of this post.
    • If you are having trouble with logging in using the generated pure-ftpd username and password, you can try changing the password for the pure-ftpd username with instructions outlined at Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP Users - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS
    • Check if you're ISP IP address is being blocked by CSF Firewall. See FAQ items 40 & 41.
    try enabling verbose debug logging in your ftp client

    i.e. filezilla

    also if your local PC running the ftp client has a firewall/router make sure it's not blocking outgoing connections to your ftp/server. i.e. whitelist your ftp client in your local PC's firewall to work over the passive port ranges

    also did you recently switch from 123.08stable to 123.09beta01 ? they both have different pure-ftpd passive port ranges

    from Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP Users - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS

    after switching to 123.09beta01, make sure to re-run centmin.sh so it can auto reconfigure CSF Firewall to the larger passive TCP ftp passive port range
