and restart xinetd:
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
Then restart ProFTPd:
/etc/init.d/proftpd restart
I did this and still can't go to the site. I have looked at everything again and just cannot seem to find the missing link.

One thing I noticed that is different is that in FC4 the ftp directory was in /var, in SuSe10 it is in /srv. Maybe using my FC4 proftpd.conf is conflicting with this but I cannot see how since /etc/init.d/proftpd is pointing to /etc/proftpd.conf.

In SuSe the log files are not in /var/log but I guess they won't generate until I can actually get to the site and log in, is that correct?
