    I followed the instructions to setting up the isp server configuration. when i restarted my server, near the end of the startup messages i got the following message:

    Starting ProFTPD ftp daemon: - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port ( already in use by "Debian"

    I tried to connect to the FTP server, it would connect but it would not log me in, it would say login incorrect, even after several tries.

    I even tried to logon the FTP server from within ispconfig, but it says Could not connect as user xxx

    Finally, i tried the user name and password of my root account on my server, and it worked, but there is nothing listed in that directory.

    Here is an output of my netstat -tap

    any help or pointers would be appreciated.

    Please put
    SocketBindTight on
    into /etc/proftpd.conf and restart ProFTPd.

    SocketBindTight on broke my ftp server, and no amount of restarting would get it back up.

    Silly me though, turns out i didn't create ftp and mail accounts for each site. I thought the login information assigned to each client would be a default login... :eek:

    Thanks for the reply though :)
