    I have a new installation of a slave on a virtual machine and ispconfig is reporting that FTP is offline. All other service appear fine. The service did come on momentarily after adding an FTP user but is now shown offline again.

    It is running on debian 5.

    How do I trouble shoot this issue please?

    Thanks till

    I believe it is VMware vSphere platform. Does that fall into one of the three you mentioned?

    No, thats a different technology, so the post does not apply to it. In our faq you can find also instructions on how to enable debugging in pure-ftpd to find out why it dont start on your server.

    I've enabled verbose logging as per the FAQ and restarted pureftp.

    The restart reported no problems and took place at 1844 approximate. However, I don't see anything suspicious in the system log, or even a result of the verbose logging. Do you?

    Code:
    etc/awstats/awstats.conf -a -r /var/log/apache/access.log ] && /usr/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -config=awstats -update >/dev/null)

    [resolved]

    Till, thanks for the help.

    I went over the installation process and recalled that I had a problem installing openbsd. I had also written STANDALONE_OR_INETD=standalone
    in capitals which may have made a difference.

    Openbsd had a problem installing initially because my sources list didn't have all that were needed - those included on the CD install of debian are slightly different to those that are included on the vsphere installation. I copied those across from my original install, reinstalled openbsd, did the steps from the tutorial again and this time pureftp started.

    The monitor is now green and ftp works without problem.

    Thanks again for your help.
