Fix kloxo pureftpd issue

Kloxo has some problems with pureftpd 1.0.36 and this is a way to fix it.
Before trying this, check for correct configuration of your linux firewall.
You may test FTP via SSH with sample FTP command:
ftp -n localhost

If the answer is like this:
Connected to localhost.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 2 of 5000 allowed.
220-Local time is now 20:41. Server port: 21.

Your pureftpd is working fine and the issue is related to firewall config.

However if the result is like this:
ftp: root@localhost: unknown host kloxo
or other erros you may try this help.

connect to your linux with root user and run the following commands:
yum install pam
yum install pam-devel
yum downgrade pure-ftpd
yum -y update

Then you should be able to use FTP.

You can restart the service vy the following linux command:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/pure-ftpd restart
