my note from pureftp website: ftp on mac

-> Can anyone explain how to update Pureftpd (from source), without having
to change all my settings etc. (Simon H)

1) get the source code and unpack it.
2) ./configure it with your favorite options
3) make
4) rm -f /usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd
5) make install-strip
6) if you run pure-ftpd from inetd,tcpserver,xinetd, etc: nothing left to do. You have it upgraded.
7) if you run it standalone, stop the server:
kill $(cat /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid)
then launch it again:
/usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd &

probably need sudo for permissions
