I have a server using ProFTPD. I can FTP into it, but ISPConfig's monitoring always reports it as not running. ISPConfig also sends out alerts about it not running every 15 mins or so even though there is no monitoring entry for it in the GUI.

So, question #1 is: how do I get ISPConfig to see the server is running or at least how do I get it to stop sending alerts that it is not running?
What's the output of
netstat -tap

So, question #2: how do I change the port proftpd listens on?

after you've changed the port? What port number are you trying?
