proftpd starting problem


last night I stoped my proftpd deamon using ./proftpd stop. Somehow today if I try to start my deamon I receive 500 FTP server shut down (going down at Wed Jul 23 08:28:44 2003) -- please try again later when trying to log on my server. I already tried ./proftpd start ./proftpd restart when I type these command I receive no error message but I keep receiving the same error when login on my ftp server. When I ps-aux there is

pro 782 0.0 0.8 2236 1096 ? S 08:46 0:00 proftpd: (accepti

So the server seems to accept incoming connection but even if kill this process using PID and restart the deamon I continue receiving the same 500 ftp message error. I'm using the standalone mode, inetd doesn't seems to work either.

any clue

thx for your help

>> deamon I receive 500 FTP server shut down

Look in ./etc/
Do you have a file named:

If you do, then the FTP server assumes that it is administratively shutdown.
If it is the case, then the FTP server will deny incoming connections.

Solution (as root):
rm /etc/shutmsg
