    I've followed the "Perfect Server Setup" for CentOS 5 except I chose to keep vsftpd. However, when I try to start ispconfig_tcpserver I get the following errors:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/ispconfig_tcpserver start
    Starting ispconfig_tcpserver
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_tcpserver: line 62: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/tcpserver/ispconfig_tcpserver: No such file or directory
    $ sudo /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/tcpserver/ispconfig_tcpserver
    sudo: unable to execute /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/tcpserver/ispconfig_tcpserver: No such file or directory
    $ ls -l /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/tcpserver
    total 44
    -rwx------ 1 root root 44060 Jul  3 02:06 ispconfig_tcpserver
    vsftpd is confirmed to be installed and working, but the tcpserver just won't start.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Now you know why the perfect setups all use proftpd ;) Vsftpd is not supported on any newer linux distributions for ISPConfig anymore.

    You can try these patches if you want to use vsftpd:


    We will add vsftpd support again in later versions when these patches are tested on all linux distributions.

    Ok, I switched to proftpd following the info in this thread

    I found that disabling identlookups didn't work and it took 10 seconds to log in, but I was able to fix that by editing proftpd_ispconfig.conf and commenting out DefaultAddress

    EDIT: I left proftpd_ispconfig.conf alone and made use of the <Global> tag

    DefaultRoot ~
    IdentLookups off
    ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
    Now everything works well.
