Default ftpd not running?

Hey,

Get this message when I'm trying to start proftpd:

Code:
houston2:~# proftpd start
 - Fatal: unknown configuration directive '<!-->' on line 7 of '/etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf'.
the file look like this:

Code:
###################################
#
# ISPConfig proftpd Configuration File
#         Version 1.0
#
###################################
<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4>
        DefaultRoot             ~
        AllowOverwrite          on
        Umask                   002
</VirtualHost>
Under "Management" −> "Server" −> "Services" it is written that its "offline", and the "restart" option is not working, it will not start up again. So please help me to locate the problem?!

Are you sure that /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf has been saved with Unix linebreaks?

I havent touch the file my self, it was delivered by the ispconfig installation.

But have found that proftpd will run now after I have created a site in the ispconfig and the /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf is altered to have the right information.

anyway thank you for your time!
