    I was following Step by Step on this WebSite To install ISPConfig, When I went to PROFTPD installation like this:
    1) apt-get install proftpd ucf

    You will be asked a question:
    Run proftpd from inetd or standalone?<-- standalone

    Then open /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf and change UseIPv6 from on to off; otherwise you'll get a warning like this when you start Proftpd:

    - IPv6 getaddrinfo '' error: Name or service not known

    2) vi /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
    UseIPv6 off

    3) ln -s /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf
    When I do this to Restar,
    4)/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

    I get this Error:

    Fatal: unknown configuration directive '[...]' on line 10 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'

    I went look at line 10 and line 10 is:
    UseIPv6 off
    It is like this in the tutorial, who knows What I can do about it?

    What can I do Please Help me

    Did you also add the [...] to the proftpd.conf ?
    If so, remove it!
    You only need to add UseIPv6 off
