PROFTPD Error When Restart


I folowed a tutorial to Install PROFTPD and I did 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 'server1.example.com' error: Name or service not known

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

3) ln -s /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf
4)/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

And I get this Error:

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

What can I do Please Help me

clearly not an intro. moved to Linux - Newbie.

as for the problem... you've been told to look at line 10 for an error. have you?
