    Hello all! Two things:

    1. I want to force people to use sftp


    2. Complete disable proftp so people can't even try to ftp

    Thank you all, I believe #1 is possible by just telling my domain users to use sftp as sshd is already running. I just want to also prevent them from using regular ftp.

    You can block the FTP port in the firewall. Or set disable = yes in /etc/xinetd.d/ftp_psa and restart xinetd (I believe Debian may use inetd instead of xinetd?). Plesk may overwrite ftp_psa though, so just closing the FTP port might be the easiest solution.
