I've just finished the proftpd howto but I haven't managed to get it working.
When I try to log in I get the following error message:
Protocol violation by server: blank line on control.
Remote host has closed the connection.
On the server side only one line shows up in the log: (I've hidden the ip and hostnames
Jan 29 20:36:22 <hostname> proftpd <hostname> (::ffff:<ip>[::ffff:<ip>]): FTP session closed.
The only real difference between my setup and the howto's is the mysql server is not on the same server as the ftp but I've made sure the mysql server is reachable from the ftp server. mysql.log and mysql.err don't show anything at all.
Not sure what else I can check.. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
