Default ISPConfig reporting FTP server offline.

I installed ISPConfig on dedicated nameservers dns1 and dns2 as per Till's how-to here:


I didn't install any ftp packages in these VM's of course. I installed ISPConfig like this:

>> Initial configuration

Operating System: Debian Lenny or compatible

Following will be a few questions for primary configuration so be careful.
Default values are in [brackets] and can be accepted with <ENTER>.
Tap in "quit" (without the quotes) to stop the installer.

Select language (en,de) [en]: en

Installation mode (standard,expert) [standard]: expert

Full qualified hostname (FQDN) of the server, eg server1.domain.tld [ns1.cooron gstudio.com]: ns1.example.tld

MySQL server hostname [localhost]: localhost

MySQL root username [root]: root

MySQL root password []: xxxxx

MySQL database to create [dbispconfig]: dbispconfig

MySQL charset [utf8]: utf8

Shall this server join an existing ISPConfig multiserver setup (y,n) [n]: y

MySQL master server hostname []: myhost.example.tld

MySQL master server root username [root]: root

MySQL master server root password []: xxxxxxx

MySQL master server database name [dbispconfig]: dbispconfig

Adding ISPConfig server record to database.

Configure Mail (y,n) [y]: n

Configure Jailkit (y,n) [y]: n

Configure FTP Server (y,n) [y]: n

Configure DNS Server (y,n) [y]: y

Configuring BIND

Hint: If this server shall run the ISPConfig interface, select 'y' in the 'Configure Apache Server' option.

Configure Apache Server (y,n) [y]: n

Configure Firewall Server (y,n) [y]: y

Configuring Firewall
Install ISPConfig Web Interface (y,n) [y]: n

Configuring DBServer
Installing ISPConfig crontab
no crontab for root
Installation completed.

Everything is looking good except that the master server is reporting that one or more of my needed services is offline - "FTP server offline"

I installed pure-FTP on ns2 to see if the Monitoring on the master server picked it up and stopped complained and it is now saying that all required services are online for ns2.

Is there a part of the installation script I can modify to make it ignore FTP service?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem, but found out that in the control panel for some reason ftp was activated in "system".
In "Systen" click on the server and check if fileserver is ticked.
