    Hi all,

    My name's Todd and I'm having a SERIOUS ERROR with ProFTPd. Just recently I upgraded my control panel from VHCS to ispCP (a VHCS fork) and I currently run ProFTPd-mysql as my FTP server. I am really losing sleep over this situation. Right now I cannot get it to start and it won't tell me why. Here's my proftpd.conf file:
    #	ispCP OMEGA ProFTPd config file
    # Includes required DSO modules. This is mandatory in proftpd 1.3
    #Include /etc/proftpd/modules.conf

    Port					21
    # To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
    # to 30.  If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
    # at once, simply increase this value.  Note that this ONLY works
    # in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
    # that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service

    I tried removing and reinstalling ProFTPd with apt-get and still nothing works. I purged the config files and nothing at all. What really drives me up the wall is that when I run "/etc/init.d/proftpd start" it tells me it's starting but doesn't start. And there is nothing logged either! It's driving me insane. Please help! Any help is appreciated!

    Did you check all log files?
    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    Have you tried to manually run the command from the init script that actually starts Proftpd? I guess it will throw an error.
