Currently my server is configured to use TLS encryption for FTP. It is explicit since it uses FTPES and on port 21. How can I switch to implicit FTPS that works on port 990? I'm using Pure_FTPd. I couldn't find any tutorials for this, it would be great if anyone could point me out to the right direction. Thank you.

All settings available to you in regards to your FTP server are available in WHM (https://example.net:2087) under Service Configuration. Assuming you have full root access to your server and cPanel, you could also update the configuration file in /etc.
