Question ProFTPD on RedHat not starting


I am trying to get ProFTPD running on RedHat. I use /usr/sbin/proftpd and there are no complaints, yet I cannot see it running in the process list, not can I connect.

Any suggestions, what I can try?

many thanks

Gerry

Check
/etc/xinetd.d
which is a dir. It may be set to run from there.
If not, try
service start proftpd

you should also be able to set it from the menus (if you have a GUI)

/etc/xinetd.d does have a proftpd file, but it does not start on boot, and service start proftpd gives an error:
start: unrecognized service

When I run service --status-all I see a line proftpd dead but subsys locked. What does that mean?

Usually there's a dir, iirc, called /var/log/subsys (or something like that) where some daemons store lockfiles. Try the man pages etc for Proftpd
