Default Proftp not accepting login

Hi

I used used the tutorial to install ispconfig on debian 4 etch. This is on a Linux virtual server so some of the install is all ready done. So I fallowed the install from the base os install on. Ie using apt-get to get the files listed.

There were a few files related to apache2 that were not in the archive.

ISPconfig is configured by default is seems to the /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf

This file has look about normal with the final line.

Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf

This file dose not exist.

Proftp works as I manually create a user and get ftp access to the server.

Any Ideas on how to get ISPconfig to create access to ftp?

Thanks
Shanta

What's in /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf, and what's the output of
Code:
ls -l /etc
?
Any errors in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/ispconfig.log?
What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /root/ispconfig
?

What happens when you comment out
Code:
Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf
in your proftpd.conf and restart Proftpd?

No change. I would assume that is proftpd_ispconfig.conf would be were ISPConfig puts the virtual users for proftpd. This file dose not exist on the server. ISPConfig Put the entry into the proftpd.cont but failed to create the proftpd_ispconfig.conf when it created the first virtual server for the site.

Thanks
