Description rainer 2018-09-29 22:13:19 UTC

due to log-rotation, my pure-ftpd is killed every day.

I tried to setup a cron-job that restarts it, but I get this as output:

/etc/rc.subr: kenv: not found
pureftpd not running?
Starting pureftpd.
eval: limits: not found
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/pure-ftpd: logger: not found
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/pure-ftpd: WARNING: failed to start pureftpd

Is that expected behavior?

If I create a shell-script

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/pure-ftpd restart

then it works.
