Following Perfect Setup Fedora 4 Proftpd Fails on start
 
We are trying to install proftpd

We built a Fedora Core 4 box. It was working great until we tried to use FTP (vsftpd). It would not permit a upload. Downloads worked fine.

We could not get it to work so we decided to try proftpd. We followed the Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 4 from FalkoTimme.com.

We jumped to the proftpd setup page. The yum install seemd to work with no problems. The

chkconfig --levels 235 proftpd on returned No errors.

We then attempted the start and it fails every try.

Do you get error messages when you try to start ProFTPd?

Please post the output of
Code:

netstat -tap

proftp
 
falko,

We used yum to un-install proftpd. We then use yum to install and it will now start. However, we are having a permissions problem.

We can FTP to the server. We can transfer a file from the server to our remote work station. However, we can not transfer from our work station to the server. We have been combing all of the articles about insatlling and configuring PROFTPD but have been unsuccessful. I will attach the results of the netstat -tap although I am assuming that is no longer necessary.

Thanks for your help.

Please post the output of
Code:

ls -la /path/to/ftp_directory
and also, as which user you're logging in with FTP.
