Output truncated to 10000 matches – How to Fix in Directadmin (PureFTPd)

By | February 15, 2016

Sometimes when you need to list a folder via FTP with huge number of files, you might see the following message:


So you will only get first 10000 files listed. If you need more, you need to change a setting in your init.d section. This solution is provided for PureFTPd FTP server, where this parameter can be set up in init script.

In order to change this limit, open /etc/rc.d/init.d/pure-ftpd

Find the string with options:


Change the limit setting after -L


Restart Pureftpd:


See that limit is gone. :)


Hope this will help you to have the complete list of files through FTP.
