service vsftpd status i get the above mesg.
all users cannot connect to the ftp server,
i've tried 1. to del the file

and restart the service ...no luck!!!
2.reboot still not working after reboot

i'm using xinetd to the vsftpd , cp the vsftpd.xinetd to the /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd dir

If a service dies with the message "X dead but subsys locked" you can be sure that ninetynine percent of the time it's a configuration error. You never have to reboot your machine or reinstall the SW for that because it doesn't fix a thing. Look in the daemon and system logs for clues. If unsure or nothing turns up post the relevant log lines if any and your /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd and /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf (in code tags).
