some days ago i ordered a new virtual server, on which i recently installed ubtunu server ( 6.06.1). The installation included plesk. I used plesk on other servers without problems but now on the ubuntu one i tried to connect via ftp but wasn't able to do so. After discovering the ftp server being proftpd i tried to start it manually. By typing "proftpd" the only thing i get back is:
- IPv6 getaddrinfo 'v31119.1blu.de' error: Name or service not known
v31119.1blu.de - fatal: Socket operation on non-socket
so i googled thist error and found much information saying i should just add:
in the /etc/[proftpd]/proftpd.conf .
Of course i tried that but the only thing it did was giving me another error
- Fatal: unknown configuration directive 'UseIPv6' on line 66 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
root@v31119:~# /etc/init.d/proftpd start
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = (unset),

are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
ProFTPd warning: cannot start neither in standalone nor in inetd/xinetd mode. Check your configuration.
My configuration File:
# Includes required DSO modules. This is mandatory in proftpd 1.3
# To have more informations about Proftpd configuration
# look at : http://www.proftpd.org/
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
DefaultRoot ~ psacln
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
#Following part of this config file were generate by PSA automatically
#Any changes in this part will be overwritten by next manipulation
#with Anonymous FTP feature in PSA control panel.
#Include directive should point to place where FTP Virtual Hosts configurations
# Primary log file mest be outside of system logrotate province
#Change default group for new files and directories in vhosts dir to psacln
# Enable PAM authentication
So I hope someone knows how to fix this because I really need ftp access to my server
thanks in advance chiachy
