ftpprod should do it. I don't quite know what the 'ftpshut now' did but you should be able to just restart it as root.

root@nyc0nfs:~# proftpd
nyc0nfs.nyc0n.2y.net - Fatal: Socket operation on non-socket
nyc0nfs.nyc0n.2y.net - (Running from command line? Use `ServerType standalone' in config file!)
root@nyc0nfs:~#

root@nyc0nfs:~# ftpprod
bash: ftpprod: command not found
root@nyc0nfs:~#

that is what i get when i run proftpd and ftpprod....it just will not come back online....

am i supposed to put something where that "service" is? in service proftpd restart? cause it says command not found...and i tried it without the service and it says it has to start with inetd, which is how its set up.....also what am i looking in the log files for? there is nothing special in there...just repeats the error message....

When you run the command ftpshut the file /etc/shutmsg is created. If this file is present then the ftpservers will shutdown. So just remove that file or rename it and try to restart the ftp server.
