    Hello all,
    I am not very good with linux, but I have a virtual server with Debian and ISPConfig. Everything went fine until I need to upgrade the MariaDB on the server.

    After that the ftp (pure-ftpd-mysql) stop to work. So, I read some tutorials and remove previously pure-ftpd and installed a new one that I download on pure-ftpd website. So at first look, it is starting without any errors.

    But is look like the service is not listen on port 21.

    If I run the command: lsof -i -P -n | grop LISTEN, not is showing on port 21.

    And even after I enable verbose debug, not is showing on logs about ftp.

    So, I will be very glad if anyone can help me on identify the issue.

    Thank you,

    Ricardo Bonino

    systemctl status pure-ftpd-mysql
    journalctl -u pure-ftpd-mysql
    Have you done reconfiguring services in ispconfig after installing the new service?
    (do an ispconfig update with reconfigure services = yes)

    I tried to execute, but it returns: There are no updates available for ISPConfig 3.1.15p2
    The ispconfig looks ok, the FTP appears active on Monitor, I can connect on database using the info on pure-ftpd conf files, the ftp users are on database. But the weird thing, is that even with verbose enabled, nothing is showing on logs, even if I try to connect on the FTP, even if a try to connect locally.

    Please find the outputs.

    Take a look into the pure ftpd log file directly in /var/log/.....

    Yesterday not was showing on logs, but now I can see only that. That's a point to investigate):

    Dec  4 07:42:52 webserver pure-ftpd: ([email protected]?) [ERROR] Configuration error
    Dec  4 07:42:56 webserver pure-ftpd: ([email protected]?) [ERROR] Configuration error
    Dec  4 07:45:02 webserver pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from localhost.localdomain
    Dec  4 07:45:02 webserver pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] Logout.
    One thing I note on pure-ftp documentation, is that there is a need to have a file named
    pure-ftpd.conf on folder /etc/. But I don´t have this file, only a folder pure-ftpd with others folders and a bunch of configuration files.

    Piece of Manual
    A sample configuration file named pure-ftpd.conf should have been installed
    in /etc/, /usr/local/etc/ or another standard location derived from
    the package installation prefix.
    My etc folder
    [email protected]:/etc# ls *ftp*
    ftpallow  ftpusers
    auth  conf  db  pureftpd-dir-aliases
    [email protected]:/etc#

    cd /tmp
    tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.1.15p2.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3_install/install
    php -q update.php

    Uhuuuuuuuuuuu. Finally I could enable again my FTP service.
    First of all I remove all configuration files for pure-ftpd and the previous installed pure-ftpd app.
    After that I follow the steps here (found this guide here on forum that apply a patch on Pure-ftpd to work on latest MariaDB):

    And at last follow the steps mentioned above by @Steini86
    And now, I can log in again.

    Thank you very much for your help. :)
