Question FTP Server offline in ISPConfig 3

Greetings to all!

I hope you guys have patience with me, I've read thoroughly throughout these forums and tried plenty of things. I'm fairly new to all this, but I'm completely committed to making this work and very eager to learn in the process. This is basically my last resort.

I have a Virtual Private Server (it is a Parallel Virtuozzo container, not an OpenVZ) from Media Temple running Linux Debian 5.0 Lenny. I do not have root access to the host, only to my VPS.

I have successfully installed everything as listed in the detailed instructions of the Perfect Server - ISPConfig 3 w/ Debian Lenny (thank you for the great guide for it help me achieve this step and learn so much in the process), however, when looking over at the monitor section, I see that the FTP Server is offline.

After looking through these forums, the solution that worked for most people was the one found in this page:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...re-ftpd+openvz

I try to do what is stated:
Quote:
after you download the deb source:

nano pure-ftpd-1.0.21/debian/rules

line 12 add --without-capabilities

optflags=--with-everything --with-largefile --with-pam --with-privsep --with-tls --without-capabilities


then build your .deb package and install dpkg -i pure-ftpd-mysql_1.0.21-8_i386.deb
However, being that I'm new at this, I dont know what does it me to download the deb source or how to do so. Also, it seems to me that the Pure-FTPd installed in my container is not i386, but x86_64. I assume this is relevant.

Any guidance or help would be greatly appreciated. I really need to get this working.

Best regards,

Jose

E: Build-Depends dependency for pure-ftpd cannot be satisfied because no available versions of package debhelper can satisfy version requirements
Any thoughts? At this point I have no idea what to do.

Ok, you have all the packages for compiling installed.
Do you have debhelper installed:

Code:
apt-get -s install debhelper

This is my output for that command:

Code:
server:~# apt-get -s install debhelper
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package debhelper is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package debhelper has no installation candidate

Are you sure you are using Debian? Beacuse package debhelper is in debian repositories. I have it installed on my Debian 5.0.5 system.

What is the output of:

Quote:
cat /etc/debian_version

Im now sure why you cant install the package, it must be there. Let's try to search for the package:

Quote:
apt-cache search debhelper | grep debhelper
