FTP server not working after moving /var

Its a long story but I installed a new hd to hold the /var/ftp folder. Setting up and mounting the drive was not to bad. I mounted it with a new directory called /new. Then copied the entire /var folder to /new. Then unmounted both drives and then mounted the new hd /dev/hdc1 with /var. It seemed to go ok. I can see activity on the new hd when I access files etc. But now my ftp server is not working. I restarted the service xinetd without any error messages. I am not sure whats up. Can you help me to fix this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks jeff

How did you copy the data? Did you simply use cp? If so, you're ownership/perms might not be right depending on which user did the copying.

I moved the files as root using mv.
