Smile Issues with proftpd on CentOS 6


Hello all,

I have a box running CentOS 6 for the purpose of hosting a website. I need to have FTP access set up but seem to be having a bit of trouble!

I have installed proftpd, what seems to have installed with no problem. I can see the proftpd server control panel if I click on 'ProFTPD Server' under Unused Modules in Webmin. However, when I click on Start Service there, nothing seems to happen. I also tried to start the service by using the command 'service proftpd start' in SSH window but I don't get any error, it just appears not to do anything.

If anybody could shed any light, I'd be most grateful - I'm new to Linux and am pulling my hair out over this...

Chris

Hi and welcome to LQ,

You can run:
Code:
ps -ef|grep proftpd
to see if proftpd is running.
If it's not running check the logs under /var/log/proftpd, or the system logs to see what you get

Regards
