Unhappy FTP Server Offline After Install

My ftp server is offline after the ISPConfig 3 installation. According to the installation manual, I correctly configured the neccessary files.

/etc/default/pure-ftpd-common
Quote:
# Configuration for pure-ftpd
# (this file is sourced by /bin/sh, edit accordingly)

# STANDALONE_OR_INETD
# valid values are "standalone" and "inetd".
# Any change here overrides the setting in debconf.
STANDALONE_OR_INETD=standalone

# VIRTUALCHROOT:
# whether to use binary with virtualchroot support
# valid values are "true" or "false"
# Any change here overrides the setting in debconf.
VIRTUALCHROOT=false

# UPLOADSCRIPT: if this is set and the daemon is run in standalone mode,
# pure-uploadscript will also be run to spawn the program given below
# for handling uploads. see /usr/share/doc/pure-ftpd/README.gz or
# pure-uploadscript(8)

# example: UPLOADSCRIPT=/usr/local/sbin/uploadhandler.pl
UPLOADSCRIPT=

# if set, pure-uploadscript will spawn $UPLOADSCRIPT running as the
# given uid and gid
UPLOADUID=
UPLOADGID=
and

/etc/inetd.conf
Quote:
# /etc/inetd.conf: see inetd(8) for further informations.
#
# Internet superserver configuration database
#
#
# Lines starting with "#:LABEL:" or "#<off>#" should not
# be changed unless you know what you are doing!
#
# If you want to disable an entry so it isn't touched during
# package updates just comment it out with a single '#' character.
#
# Packages should modify this file by using update-inetd(8)

#:STANDARD: These are standard services.
#ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper

#:INFO: Info services
#:BOOT: TFTP service is provided primarily for booting. Most sites
# run this only on machines acting as "boot servers."

When I restart the ftp server by issueing this command /etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart i get this reply :-

Quote:
Restarting internet superserver: inetd* Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled.
On the ISPConfig service monitor, i see FTP-Server: Offline

Any idea on what might be wrong?

Pureftpd is running as standalone server and not trough inetd. If you want to start pureftpd, use its start script in /etc/init.d/

Never mind, i give up on this. I am going with OpenVZ with HyperVM and Lxadmin.

I will give up looking for free stuff. I come to a conclusion that nothing will beat paid software, even if it's DEAD CHEAP. I'd rather pay $10 / Month; than loose my time/effort and get angry and loose sleep over nothing.

I'm having the same problem. In the server monitor it shows FTP-SERVER OFFLINE. I've tried restarting pure-ftp from init.d but it still show offline.

Also, I"m running this on a debian4 VPS with openVZ, and at the bottom of the install I noticed:

Hints:

debian 4.0 under openvz:

Quote:
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
I don't know what that means.

These commands have to be executed on the host system in case that pureftpd does not start. But it does not has to be a problem with starting when it shows offline. It might just be that your system has not correct setting for localhost in /etc/hosts and pureftpd is not listening on localhost.

And you think that anyone is able to help you with your problem if yo do not even provide the exact error messages that you got...

I've used alot of different "perfect" how-to's on howtoforge, and they always work .. if not i always noticed that i overlooked a step, forgot something that was described in the how-to...

The problem with this is, is that you get complete newbies to work with stuff like courier, postfix, authentication crap etc .. which actually should not have shell access, but 'just' an ispconfig login and let the system admin install ispconfig for them.

saves a lot of hassle ;-)
