Default FTP-Server: Offline

Hi all

After grappling with this problem for many hours I thought I'd better ask for some help...

I installed ISPConfig3 from this howto, then retraced my steps using the more popular "Perfect Server Debian Squeeze with Bind and Courier ISPConfig3" guide, updating and reinstalling packages where necessary.

I removed the default FTP server (proftpd) which appeared to be installed somehow, but not running, installed pure-ftpd, and then updated ISPConfig to recognise my pure-ftpd installation, which it didn't before, but now does.

At least, it shows up as a listed service under the monitor tab now, however it shows as "Offline".

I watched the console during updating my ISPConfig installation and it did appear to start it with the following command:

/usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-mysql-virtualchroot -l mysql:/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf -l pam -D -b -u 1000 -Y 1 -O clf:/var/log/pure-ftpd/transfer.log -E -A -8 UTF-8 -H -B

However if I run netstat, the process isn't listening on any port.

(I can start it manually by running "pure-ftpd-mysql &", and it shows up in netstat. It just doesn't appear to be invoked by ISPConfig.)

I've read a bunch of existing threads on the subject, but couldn't find my answer.

Where do I start trying to troubleshoot this?

Perhaps edit /etc/default/saslauthd

and change autostart to "yes"

# Should saslauthd run automatically on startup? (default: no)
START=yes


Hope it works for you.

Hi

Thanks - I checked the autostart option and it was set to YES already ...

Any other ideas?

In the monitor ---> "show system log" part of the dashboard can you see pure-ftpd running every 5 minutes something like this?

....... xftp pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
....... xftp pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
....... xftp pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
....... xftp pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.


Are there any errors in the system log?

Um, I appear to have nothing in the log section, see attached image...

Is there an equivalent log file I can look at not through the web interface?

Cool screenshot.

What is happening in the "logfiles" section down the bottom there -- especially the "system log" output?

The equivalent log file is /var/log/messages
