Default proftpd: ProFTPd warning: cannot start neither ...

When typing in the following...

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd start
I get this message...

Code:
ProFTPd warning: cannot start neither in standalone nor in inetd/xinetd mode. Check your configuration.
help...

(etc/hosts)

Code:
127.0.0.1	localhost
192.168.0.100	ocram

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

I am not sure what else I need to configure...


**EDIT**
I figured out what the issue was...and this is what I did!

First changed the "Server Type" from "inetd" to "standalone" in the proftpd.conf file.

tried to start/restart
started receiving the error that it Fails on start.

checked the /etc/hosts file and updated it to the following:


Code:
127.0.0.1	localhost
192.168.0.100	ocram

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ocram
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
