When I run ftpwho

These two lines show:

 2040 user1 [1035h4] (n/a) STOR file1.log
 1279 user2 [1036h8] (n/a) STOR file1.txt

As you can see from the time limit they have been here forever and obviously not connected anymore.   I have my timeouts all set, all the other ones dissapear but these stay,  how do I get rid of them?

I have restarted ftp server and that did not help either

    try deleting the proftpd.scoreboard file. it should be under var/proftpd in your install directory, probably /usr/local.

    will that make the ftp server crash?  do I need to restart after that?
