    Thank you, this worked for me on my VPS server. But I did not need to restart service – says not running as a service, but if i run “sudo lsof” I see “in.proftp” running instead, with the name of the ftp user.

    Anyway, thanks for clear instruction!

    You may also want to add the additional similar config line…
    AllowRetrieveRestart On
    …which allows resumption of a download.
