    proftpd have caused various servers (specially cpanel servers running redhat 7.3) to crash for me too, but that's rare, like once every year or less (according to my stats and memory). Technicians from various datacenters have never provided me a good explanation on this and I've never tried to investigate more since like I said it seems rare under normal operating conditions proftpd to crash the server (my very very personal experience)

    If you are sure that proftpd was the cause of the crash and your server started again or can start again, I think that you'll notice no other problems. At least this happened to me... most of the times the only result was an undesired reboot.

    In any case a control by a quallified person or friend will not harm you.

    Pureftpd is faster, but I've never tried it. So I don't know much about it.

    PureFTPD is by far, one of the best FTPD around. Best one I ever used.
    Can you be scared half to death twice?
