Can't configure ProFTPD from webmin


I'm a newbie when it come to linux... anyway, i'm managing a web server mostly from webmin, and when i'm trying to access the ProFTPD configuration i get a strange error :

The program /usr/sbin/proftpd does not appear to be the ProFTPD server. Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect. Output from the command /usr/sbin/proftpd -v was :
- ProFTPD Version 1.2.8


Anybody knows what should be done here, cuz i googled this and found nothing...

Thanks

It means you DO NOT have proftpd installed on the server you are trying to administer. If you need to use proftpd, then obtain the rpm from the install cd and install first.

My guess is that either your version of Webmin is older/newer than this version of ProFTPD and so doesn't recognise it, or proftpd.conf is missing or corrupt.

Which distro?
