Its important that you list the distro that you are using and provide more details of your problem.

make sure another ftp server isn't currently enabled through xinetd

from command line: netstat -tpa | grep ftp

if ftp is shown, another server is running, so you'll have to disable this before you can then enable vsftpd to run. i had the same problem when i initially installed vsftpd. i searched for available ftp servers on my system and found that gssftp was enabled. I edited the file /etc/xinetd.d/gssftp to change disable = no to disable = yes.. this should help..

what version of linux are you running? what is your vsftpd.conf file look like?

-adam

also, the command: /bin_location/service vsftpd restart will always say that the restart failed since it was never started..
