Another ProFTPD conf file?

I have just compiled ProFTPD and I can't get it to read the right proftpd.conf file.

I try the command 'proftpd'... and it defaults to some conf file somewhere else...

But I have been trying to set the conf file to '/etc/proftpd.conf' by doing a:

proftpd -c "/etc/proftpd.conf"

And it picks up that conf file... is there anyway to get it to make sure it defaults to that conf file instead of the other (which I have no clue on where it's at)....

Thanks in advance...

locate proftpd.conf

Also, check /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf since that is (I think) where it goes when it's compiled. You can easily symlink the 2 if that will make your life any easier:
ln -sf /etc/proftpd.conf /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf

Then when you edit one, it will inheritently edit the other. Also, permissions will be the same for both files as it will use the perms of the original file, so ensure you have the ones for the original one set correctly.
