This being my first post, I'd like to say Hello to everyone, your HowTo Guides and Forum posts have been very valuable to me in learning setting up a Linux VPS I have rented ready for a business venture me and my wife intend to take.
After messing about with pre-setup LAMP installations (ie. XAMPP), I decided to try at configuring and setting up the server myself ( I do have a lot of knowledge with setting things up and learn pretty fast ).
I followed a few HowTo guides but when I came accross;
The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.5 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3]
I thought, 'Yeah, that looks like what I might be looking for in a server right now'. So, I followed the HowTo but came accross some issues which I have sorted some out (which where mainly my own miss-spellings, heh!) but, when I got this section in the HowTo on page 5, I am quite stumped;
16 Install PureFTPd
PureFTPd can be installed with the following command:
Then create the system startup links and start PureFTPd:
yum install pure-ftpd
chkconfig --levels 235 pure-ftpd on
Everything installs fine, but when it comes to me trying to start pure-ftpd I am presented with the following un-helpfull message;
Starting pure-ftpd: [FAILED]
Now, after reading HowTo guides on Pure-FTPd and comments in the forums I am assuming that I may have to compile a Pure-Ftpd RPM file for myself for CentOS 5.5 x86_64?
Could someone please point me in the right direction or if I am in-deed just missing something or that I may have messed a step up in the previous sections of the guide (which I do not beleave to be true so far now).
