    Hello all, first my congratulations for the great explanation for the use of ISPConfig.

    If Windows freak (sorry), I'm well just go and explore how Linux fits together, and et suits me fine.
    I have on the system are geinstaleerd openSUSE, 11.3, and have therefore followed this guide.
    All goes well, for one thing.

    I have the latest version of ProFTPD downloaded, unpacked, compiled and installed.
    It all seems to go well, until the time of service start, it fails.

    / etc / init.d / proftpd start

    I get the following message;

    / etc / init.d / proftpd: Permission denied

    When I go looking, ProFTPD is not found in the directory.
    How can I fix this, thanks very much

    Perhaps you may be able to unit test each line within the start script to narrow it down to a specific line?

    What's the output of
    ls -l /etc/init.d/proftpd

    The command must be
    /etc/init.d/proftpd start
    (without spaces before and after the slashes).
