Question ISPConfig 3.0.0.7 Beta - ProFTPd: Offline - FTP not working

Hi,

I have sucessfully installed ISPConfig 3.0.0.7 Beta on a barebone Debian 4.0 Etch VPS and I am impressed so far. The installation process was very simple and easy.

The only problem I am having is that ProFTPd will not start.

If followed the following part of the Debian install:

Quote:
4) Install pure-ftpd and quota

apt-get install pure-ftpd-common pure-ftpd-mysql quota quotatool

Edit the file /etc/default/pure-ftpd-common

vi /etc/default/pure-ftpd-common

and change the start mode from inetd to standalone.

Edit the file /etc/inetd.conf

vi /etc/inetd.conf

and comment out the line for the FTP service, so it looks like this:

# ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper

Then execute:

/etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart
When executing:
Code:
/etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart
I get:
Restarting internet superserver: inetd* Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled.

Also:
Code:
/etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd start
Results in:
Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled.
Code:
dpkg-reconfigure pure-ftpd-mysql / dpkg-reconfigure pure-ftpd-common
Does anyone have an idea what to do about this?

These forums are useful and whenever I cannot find an answer I'll post my questions. Thank you.

Stop the machine (101 in this case) and execute this if you are in a OpenVZ environment


VPSID=101

for CAP in CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE
do
vzctl set $VPSID --capability ${CAP}n --save
done

Then restart the VE

Question

I only have remote SSH access to the server, no control panel. Your post makes me think maybe there is a permission/privilege issue with my configuration?

First, ispconfig 3 does not support proftpd, it supports pureftpd so I hope you installed pureftpd and not proftpd as you stated in the headline.

1) Are you running pureftpd in a virtual machone or not.

Quote:
Restarting internet superserver: inetd* Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled.
Thats correct as you must run pureftpd as standalone server and not in inetd! To restart pureftpd, you must restart the pureftpd start script and not the inetd script.

Yes, I installed Pure-FTPd. That is just an error in the title that needs to be changed.

/etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart is what is included in the Debian install instructions. I did set Pure-FTPd as standalone in the config file. But I am miffed why then there are instructions to start the inetd script in the instructions?

Also, another question, is there a way to add a second nameserver in ISPConfig3?

This is included to make sure that pureftpd is not running trough inted anymore.

You may add as many nameservers as you want. Just point them to the master mysql database.
