I believe i'd followed instructions fairly well, other than the configuration prompts not coming up after the 2 initial install processes

Enable suExec? <-- Yes
Configuring mysql-server (Install Hints) <-- OK
Which web server would you like to reconfigure automatically? <-- apache, apache2
Do you want me to restart apache now? <-- Yes

Run pure-ftpd from inetd or as a standalone server? <-- standalone
Do you want pure-ftpwho to be installed setuid root? <-- No
) - none of these prompts came up...
I wrote the tutorial using Debian - you're using Ubuntu, maybe that's causing your problems.

FTP is always listening on port 21.

Please post the output of
netstat -tap
