xinetd failed on restart, help : (


I have posted information about this in my vsftpd thread. I would have left it at that thread, but I feel this is a larger issue now as a lot more things are broken with xinetd failing to restart.

I don't see what it could be as I have completely abandoned vsftpd for the moment and it still won't restart.

The error log looked like this while trying to run vsftpd, when I took out the vsftpd file from the /xinetd.d/ directory, it looks the same except the last 3 lines go away (and of course the line in the middle about loading vsftpd). Any idea what might have went wrong?

If it's this easy to break something and be unable to at least revert to its original form, I have a feeling I am going to be seriously screwed.

xinetd is just printing out all the services it is not going to handle/serve - because they are marked as "disabled" in the configuration files mentioned.

Look into those files and you will see.
This is normal - nothing wrong here.

ah..

So it's failing to start because there is nothing to start? and when I try to add the one thing (vsftpd) there is a configuration problem so it also fails?

I guess I need to find out what's wrong with the vsftpd configuration then.

sigh and thanks much. I'm going to be a basket case during the next few days (and to a lesser extent weeks/months)

actually: xinetd is NOT failing to start !
it is starting and is just telling you that it is not going to manage the mentioned services - because the configuration says "disable it"
...but the result is as you understood it: nothing wrong here with xinetd
