    The situation was as follows, I have edited some lines in /etc/proftpd.conf, and want to restart the proftpd service.

    here is the log:
    Code:
    Starten van proftpd:  - setting default address to 127.0.0.1
     - setting default address to 127.0.0.1
     - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.88:21) already in use by "ProFTPD"
     - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.89:21) already in use by "ProFTPD"
                                                               [  OK  ]
    
    I thought 'nevermind' and I look for a solution on this forum. In this post I saw that till post a link for a possible solution, so I have try that: adding "SocketBindTight on" in proftpd.conf, but get then the error again, and an extra line as a suprise:

    Code:
    [root@server01 ~]# /etc/init.d/proftpd stop
    Stoppen van proftpd:                                       [  OK  ]
    [root@server01 ~]# /etc/init.d/proftpd start
    Starten van proftpd:  - setting default address to 127.0.0.1
     - setting default address to 127.0.0.1
     - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.88:21) already in use by "ProFTPD"
     - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.2.89:21) already in use by "ProFTPD"
    localhost.localdomain - SocketBindTight in effect, ignoring DefaultServer
                                                               [  OK  ]
    
    Thus SocketBindTight is working, but does not solve the warning. Can I just ignore the warning? ProFTPD have done its restart, you know.

    Anyone have an idea?

    Thanks in advance

    I have had that warning for ages, ignored it and everything worked. I'd be glad to get rid of it too.

    If FTP is still working, I'd ignore it.
