Hello! I have used the following HOWTO on a clean Etch revision 2 install: http://www.howtoforge.com/proftpd_mysql_virtual_hosting_debian_etch. I should make a note that I have compiled my own MySQL 5.0.51 and OpenSSL 0.9.8g. After setting everything accordingly, when I try to connect with ftp localhost, i get the following message: Connected to localhost. 421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection Where did I go wrong?? Ca anyone help me? PS: Do you think I should replace the my.cnf from the mysql-common package with mine from my compile?
