    FTP is a widely used service and the pure-ftpd configuration has TLS enabled, so it's secure as well. So why remove it? SFTP is SSH, unlike pure-ftpd it does not support virtual users, so you need an additional Linux user for each account in /etc/passwd.

    One less daemon running. But I see the issue with virtual users.
