Default proftpd no longer working

i can no longer use my ftp client as it will not connect to my server.

If i try a restart on /etc/init.d/proftpd restart this happens
server1:~# /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
Stopping ftp server: proftpd.
Starting ftp server: proftpd - warning: unable to determine IP address of 'server1.myhost.com'
 - error: no valid servers configured
 - Fatal: error processing configuration file '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
the ip address is192.168.2.4 of my server and everything else is using this ip address fine.

now i have been mucking about with postfix as some who have read my other threads may know to get my emails working. Could there be a link as there seems to be in /etc/default/sasauthd and i have changed some settings in there

please can anyone help

Default Solved

ok when i did

hostname -f
unknown host
so i checked my hosts file and low and behold an extra "." had appeared and it looked like this

PHP Code:
server1.myhost.com.myhost.com server1 
i removed the "." and hostname -f returned
all is now well and back up and running fine. the strange thing is this has happened since the 8/12/2011 as the ftp log shows all well till then, no i hadf been messing with postfix settings last week so it seems strange this extra "." has appeared from nowhere.
