I get the reserve memory error when a FTP connection to pure-ftpd is
opened. pure-ftpd immediately crashes with the above error and the
FTP connection is never established. I have installed pure-ftpd the
same way on a Windows Server 2008 SP2 x86 instance and a Windows 7 x86
instance. I run into the same error on each, and each machine has
plenty of RAM available. Other packages aren't doing this. It
happens with the built-in anonymous user along with any new users that
eventually are added in /etc/pureftpd.passwd
Setup.exe version 2.876 (32 bit)
pure-ftpd version installed is 1.0.43-1
How are you running pure-ftpd ?
Do you have problem with normal users ?
It may be a problem of authorization to change user owner for the process.
Anyone have any clue what the issue is? There is no log entry in
/var/log and I see pure-ftpd.exe running as a process... it just
crashes every time a connection is opened.
Please attach the cygcheck.out.
PS: I can not follow up the matter in detail until next week.
